This article begins by examining the characteristics of the "Electric Drive Automatic Control Systems" course within the Electrical Engineering and Automation major at Yulin University, a local applied university, identifying the existing issues in the current teaching and providing a detailed analysis. Secondly, with the goal of serving local enterprises in Yulin, the curriculum was revised in collaboration with these businesses. Active discussions were held with local engineers on course construction, and reforms were implemented in several areas, including adjusting teaching hours, modifying practical teaching content, introducing simulation software for inquiry-based learning, implementing discussion-based teaching methods, and expanding the teaching content. Finally, the learning management system SuperStarLearn was utilized as an auxiliary tool to reform the process assessment in three aspects: attendance assessment, in-class quizzes, and homework assessment. Through this series of reforms, the persistent issues with the course were overcome, stimulating students' enthusiasm for learning and providing them with a greater sense of achievement and satisfaction in their professional studies.
