Nonetheless, that ASU found it was less expensive to offer online classes at four of six schools is probably noteworthy. Those lower costs are possible, the report says, in part because schools can save money on building costs for new students. That is true but, as others have cited, only if the school is already at maximum on-campus capacity where adding students would necessitate adding more space. Still, in those cases, online offerings would save building and physical maintenance costs. But mostly, ASU says, the savings in online classes are found by having larger classes with less experienced, cheaper adjunct and part-time faculty.
