Multimedia interactive teaching is essentially a teaching mode that makes full use of multimedia teaching equipment, combines teachers' teaching and classroom control ability, stimulates students' autonomous learning potential, and returns the classroom to students. In the teaching practice of environmental microbiology(EM), infiltrating high-tech into the teaching process can enable students to have a deeper understanding of the learning objectives of the course. For this reason, this paper designs a multimedia interactive teaching system(MITS), which can be applied to any course teaching to realize an intelligent teaching mode. After investigating the use of multimedia technology(MT) in EM classrooms and the teaching effect of schools in a province, it is found that most schools often use MT for teaching in EM. Students believe that multimedia interactive teaching can improve learning interest and inspire thinking. The proportion of the number of people is also very large. The survey results reflect the pivotal role of MT in classroom teaching.
