Currently, many Chinese college students are children of middle-class families, some of them are spoiled and pampered since childhood, and do not want to study or work but play with their cell phones all day long, and they lack patriotic consciousness, ideal beliefs and enthusiasm for learning. In order to address this issue, the research group conducted a one-semester experiment with the theme of "comparison of global COVID-19 pandemic prevention and treatment data sharing" among 357 students in 10 classes in Chinese universities. The classes in the experimental group, which collected short videos from different countries and conducted "comparison-analysis-discussion", have improved their patriotic consciousness, national identity, ideal beliefs, study enthusiasm and academic achievement compared with those before the experiment; while the classes in the control group, which did not participate in and stayed the original study and life status, have no significant changes in the above indexes before and after the experiment. This experiment provides an effective experience and reference for the path innovation of college students' ideal, belief and patriotic education.
