The Covid-19 pandemic marked a transition in digital teaching. In a short while, higher education had to adopt digital learning processes. This contribution highlights challenges and achievements in a subjective way, based on my own practical insights during the pandemic. Against this background, four major findings can be identified. (1) The rapid transformation toward digital learning leaves a significant amount of students behind, but others benefit from the increase in flexibility and self-organization digital learning provides. (2) Collaboration among students is essential for the learning process but has to be organized. (3) Tools that resemble traditional forms of teaching are well received; new forms of teaching and learning that increase collaboration and interaction but also workload for students are less accepted. (4) Digital teaching fosters the already existing process of work intensification, dissolution of boundaries of work, and an increase in multitasking for the teaching staff.
