Abstract

The year 2020 is marked by a COVID-19 that was propagated and impacted people all over the world. A total confinement of the population was imposed in many countries. In Morocco since March 16, 2020, a state of health emergency and confinement has been declared. The Ministry of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research has taken a series of measures to ensure educational continuity. It has broadcasted online courses in synchronous/asynchronous modes. The restrictions imposed by Covid 19 and advances in information technology (IT) raise the question of implementation of new methods of teaching, mainly distance learning. This article presents the impact of the COVID19 pandemic and challenges confronted by the Moroccan higher education sector. A survey was conducted among master students (Business Administration) using an anonymous questionnaire. A thinking workshop on the Mural software has also been implemented with a group of professors, in order to draw up a list of proposals and recommendations. Through this research work, it has been concluded that accompanying and support should be provided to the students so as to remedy the difficulties encountered during this period and to encourage a use of active methods of learning.
