Following the COVID-19 epidemic in March 2020, Algerian universities were forced to implement remote teaching across the country. Nonetheless, the major players in this context have not been pre-implemented. We are therefore interested in the difficulties encountered in this new context, mainly in the didactic relationship. Having made this preliminary statement regarding distance teaching, we should now ask what the nature of the problems is that flow from these breaches of the didactic contract and what their consequences are for both the introduction of teaching content and for the assessment methods. To answer these questions, a questionnaire was addressed to both teachers and students of the faculty of letters at Hassiba Benbouali University, in the French department, to detect the nature of the obstacles encountered. In other words, the data analysis aims to solve the various problems presented by these new hybrid teaching situations within Algerian university settings. The findings provide valuable insights into preparing for and addressing the challenges of hybrid and remote teaching. Thus, it is crucial to proactively develop actionable strategies to elevate the overall quality of education in this ever evolving academic prospect.
