Roughly 25% of my Digital Libraries class (10 people or so) think that there is “too much computer stuff” in the class, according to the informal poll tonight. I’m honestly very curious as to what else they expected.

I’m also finally noticing just how large my classes are, particularly for grad level. Out of my eight classes since I arrived, just one has had less than 15 people. The largest was around 150. Average is probably closer to 35. It doesn’t bother me too much or I would have noticed before now. But in retrospect, aren’t grad classes generally supposed to be small?

  1. i guess it all depends on how big your program is. the most we have is around 50, and that is in the classes covering all concentrations. in my concentration classes, we have 15. you would think that grad classes would be smaller, but then again, they might also have a smaller teaching base so that would limit how many classes can be taught at one time and how big they are. i like that my concentration classes are smaller, it increases interactions and i get to know the people better. anyway, thats all. hehe. oh and thanks for the gmail invite!
