Abstract

The rapid spread of new COVID-19 outbreak is presenting major challenges to societies across the world, with direct and complex impacts on higher education institutions and systems. We believe there are significant opportunities to learn from the quickly pedagogical plan implemented by Moroccan Ministry of Education, in order to strengthen the country response to COVID-19 now and into the future, and shedding the light on institutionalizing learning in the areas of crisis/risk management, training, and decision-making in the lenses of the sustainable development education as well as highly embedding the technology into curricula, and investing in scientific research. Through a content analysis of the daily newspaper Moroccan World News and official reports of the Ministry of Education and universities website, we are dressing the current situation and extracting the areas needing an urgent assessment during and after the outbreak.

Keywords: Covid19, Distance Education, Sustainable Development, Risk Management
