The appearance of the Covid-19 since the beginning of the year 2020 has involved changes in many aspects of daily life in the world. Thus, it has impacted the university in its three dimensions: humanistic, research, and interaction with the company and the community. Particularly in teaching that has varied substantially. In this context, the teaching, and results in courses in some Peruvian universities will be compared during the 2019-2 semesters (eminently face-to-face) and the 2020-1 semester (necessarily virtual). The results and their analysis lead to a proposal of pedagogical innovations in teaching and its extrapolation to the research and interaction of the university with companies and communities.
