One of the biggest complaints from students who experienced virtual learning in the spring was that the student zoom ration was too high. While a lecture can have thousands of listeners, a seminar, language course, or discussion session can only have a small number of speakers. It is now grossly apparent that virtual classes quickly become painful and futile if just a tiny minority has any meaningful participation. Has the University conducted any studies on what the optimum number should be?
