Due to this, academic activities were provided mostly by remote teaching and learning solutions. The transition, in an emergency remote teaching and learning, raised some challenges, namely regarding technical, pedagogical and organizational issues, but also constraints in what concerns integration, online class methodologies, tutoring and assessment of students. Furthermore, it seems that pandemic episodes can increase in the future. Therefore it is important that higher education institutions prepare themselves to deal with this scenario, promoting an in-depth reflection about the future challenges to this post-pandemic era and to possible future crisis.
