I’m curious about some comparisons between online and on-ground courses, so a couple of questions:
1. The second graph illustrates some measure of “yield”, how many e-seats are filled out of the courses’ rated capacity. Is this substantially higher or lower than that of on-ground courses?
2. Last summer, it looks like 1400 students took about 95 classes, around 15 students per class. Is that equivalent to the on-ground course number?
Finally, 3. Can you provide some info about the pie chart? I can’t figure out quite what it’s displaying.

1.& 2. I don’t know, but I’ll try to find out.

3. Those are the enrollment numbers from Spring 2013. I’ve put a simplified chart by Subject below that in the post.

For Summer 2013, there were 4153 students enrolled in on ground courses (not including online or hybrid). There were 6213 seats so that means 67% of capacity. There were 304 classes onground which yields 13.7 students/class. So yes, that’s essentially equivalent to online.

BTW. There were 233 students enrolled in hybrid courses out of 657 seats, so those are much less popular. They averaged 12.3 students/section.

The comparable numbers for Spring 2013 on ground are 42080 students out of 47953 seats in 2022 sections for an average of 20.8 students/section.

If the above numbers look funky, it’s because I’m not counting actual students, but enrollment in classes.
