The COVID-19 pandemic has posed great challenges to the learning and teaching in universities. While addressing this crisis, the teachers and students have recognized the coexistence of the challenge and opportunity. The pandemic has not only changed education dramatically, with the distinctive rise of e-learning and remote teaching, but also brings the latest fashion technologies such as intelligent wearables and advanced textiles to citizens including the university students. Following this trend, we provide a case study in fashion and wearable technology subjects by putting the COVID-19 in a context of teaching and learning. We have proposed varied assignments and encourage students to work on teamwork and group projects related to the COVID-19. Particularly, development of a wearable cooling mask is demonstrated and discussed as a study case, which has significantly improved interest of the students and their understanding of knowledge in fashion technologies.
