The current traditional teaching format could not cater for the new generation of students’ needs during COVID-19. This article deals with the problems of modern digital technology, which has given a powerful impetus to higher education Hy-flex activities.  To identify how digital technologies that contribute to Hy-flex teaching, we investigate the current most widely used digital technologies and platforms that related to Hy-flex teaching. A more active teaching format used 5G and Artificial Intelligence technologies was designed and practiced in this study. The aim of this study is to seek solutions to improve traditional learning programs during the COVID-19 crisis. We present the process of redesigning the procurement management course for our institution, students and faculty. We show a new approach to give class to students by digital technologies and platforms. We also provide the outcomes of an exam test result survey to emphasize the advantages of the Hy-Flex teaching method based on digital technologies, especially associated with the BOPPPS model. This study contributes in theory level, provides a new discussion on digital Hy-Flex teaching as well. At practitioner level, it offers insights to effectively promote education transformation for institutions.
