This study aims to find an overview of the effectiveness of online lectures at the Mathematics Department of Universitas Negeri Makassar during the Covid-19 pandemic, in terms of lecturers’ online teaching practices and students’ learning achievement and student responses. Data was collected by documentation, questionnaire, and interview techniques. The research subjects consisted of 10 lecturers and 240 students from semesters II, IV, and VI of the 2020/2021 academic year. The results showed that online learning is carried out through synchronous and asynchronous interactions, and assessment methods are used. Moreover, the LMS system has already been implemented in Universitas Negeri Makassar, and it has also been made compulsory for the lecturers to apply in daily lectures. This system enables the lecturer to keep track of students’ progress, performance, and attendance. In addition, the results showed that during the covid-19 pandemic, other alternative learning practices were implemented by lecturers, namely: Zoom, WhatsApp, Google Classroom, YouTube, and e-mail.

Meanwhile, the obstacles faced by students and lecturers are internet networks. The results showed that 92% of students completed their courses. The average percentage of learning completeness of students taking mathematics, education, research, and assessment courses was 89.16, with the effect being quite effective. The findings indicated that, while the student faced challenges in online lectures, student responses were positive despite many obstacles related to technology, pedagogy, and psychology. The study’s findings suggest that online learning environments provide affordances that allow mathematics lecturers to redefine and reflect on their teaching practices.
