This term we have a record breaking 1000+ students taking our online courses. This is especially good in the face of the current economic climate, and may be a consequence of it. However I also think it is a great testament to the quality of our courses and the work of everyone in the Department and TALL.
It is particularly gratifying to see the high number of returning students, clearly a lot of people are having a good experience on these courses, and one which they want to repeat.
We are taking enrollments for January already and will be offering two new courses, Literary Theory and our first ever 5 week course, Introduction to the History of Medicine, with new courses in creative writing, economics, literature, philosophy and history coming later in 2010.
