Since fall 2007, enrollments on campus in HIS 101 have gone from 312 to 440. At the same time, enrollments in the online section of HIS 101 have gone from 134 to 344. Guess what, no new full-time instructors were hired to help cover that increase. If we are funded at, say, 27 students per class in history, and a full-time instructor teaches 5 classes, then that works out to 135 students per full-time instructor.
