This paper discusses the online teaching of Chinese as a foreign language in domestic universities with its openness and convenience, which helps Chinese education to enter a new stage. Online teaching is gradually changing the teaching process in China, which will be a major challenge for teachers who have been practicing traditional teaching methods. At the same time, problems such as weak interactivity and disconnection between "teaching" and "learning" also enable relevant scholars to think deeply about improving the quality of online teaching of Chinese as a foreign language. In view of the current implementation status and existing problems of online teaching of Chinese education, the author integrates various teaching resources, and puts forward targeted suggestions and paths, in order to improve the quality of online teaching of Chinese education and make the foreign Chinese major develop in a more positive direction.
