This paper discusses the scalability of online classes to handle the increasing growth in online enrollment. Based on a University of North Carolina System General Administration funded pilot project, a delivery model for large online courses is being developed to address the demand for online courses while maintaining a high standard of quality instruction. This paper examines the growth of online enrollment at East Carolina University, the development of a model to maximize resources while delivering high quality education, and the methods to be administered to assure quality.
