The sudden epidemic has disrupted the traditional teaching model of higher education. Most universities in Hong Kong adjusted their teaching methods in the early stage of the COVID-19 pandemic. The hybrid-teaching model was adopted during the epidemic due to interrupting the course and considering the safety factors of teachers and students. Under the hybrid-teaching model, students can either participate in class in person or online. Analyze the responses and challenges of hybrid-teaching implementation under the epidemic. This study critically analyzes local stakeholders' initiatives and media opinions, relevant research in the higher education field, news reports, academic databases, and other trustworthy sources.

It is found that hybrid teaching models can provide teachers and students with flexible and diverse teaching methods, catering to those students with different backgrounds or encounters. However, there remain inadequate measures for hybrid teaching and "soft" and "hard" support for students. The online infrastructure of campuses is not perfect, and the distribution of resources is not balanced enough, affecting students' learning experiences. Regarding the challenges universities face in higher education, this study concludes with recommendations on how campuses can adapt to implement a viable hybrid teaching model.
