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.

@Mike,

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. http://you.ccsu.edu/onlinecourses/2013/01/24/current-practices/chart_4/

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.
