 Table 4: San Jose City College : Spring Semester 2003

     Data Summary

    The information this data provides allows us to observe a pattern:

    1-     Both enrollment and retention levels have increased from one semester to the next.

    2-     Successful completion of the course is also increasing.

    3-     Summer online classes seem to attract more enrollees.

    4-     Data from table 2 suggests that students prefer online courses to traditional ones and success rate is much higher in these online courses.

    5-     Data collected from WebCT course-sites shows that students do more reading and writing than it is possible in a traditional environment.
