Abstract [en]

This paper presents an empirical study and trial conducted at the department of Computer and Systems Sciences (DSV) at Stockholm University. The study was conducted during the spring term of 2012. The overall goal of the paper is to evaluate the economical feasibility in decreasing the student teacher ratio in an online course in project management. The context for this study is the Swedish university system where universities are 100% state funded based on registration and performance. This study only accounts for cost and revenue connected to the course, i.e. for delivering the course itself not the cost for overhead. The rational for this is that 50% of the total financing for a student is given at registration and used within the department to cover overhead and indirect costs. The remaining 50% of the total financing is given upon completion of course credits and is in this study used as the basis for revenue calculations.
