Abstract

In the autumn semester of 2021, Dublin City University's (DCU) students returned to campus after just over a year of remote learning. This return had some caveats: COVID-19 restrictions limited how students could interact with lectures, tutorials and maths support. To continue catering to students during this period, the Maths Learning Centre (MLC) provided support both in-person (at a reduced capacity to accommodate COVID-19 restrictions) and synchronously online via bookable Zoom sessions — a continuation of the support provided during COVID-19 lockdowns. As Covid restrictions were lifted in September 2022, and the MLC drop-in service returned to its pre-Covid operation, the MLC continued to provide this online support. In this paper, we will examine the online MLC attendance over the last few years and discuss this in the context of in-person attendance.
