This paper is focusing on the Engineering Mathematics course that was conducted on an online platform due to the Pandemic of Covid-19. Mathematics instructors are being forced to digitize their course materials, such as videos of lecture topics over the Internet, but lack a detailed survey that addresses how students interact with course content, the tools available during class, and the available equipment at home. This presence challenge has been encountered through before and after class surveys to close the gap on the abovementioned issue through online learning. Throughout this study, the needs of students of the various departments involved were taken into account for the calculation of their satisfaction feedback that was investigated. The survey results also indicate that the problem of Internet coverage over time no longer exists for most students. Only the result of audio equipment instability due to the non-standard good quality of the equipment used during the online learning course was rated 18.3% out of 100%. The engineering mathematics content was delivered as planned and no critical learning issues were identified.
