Arizona State Tries To Save Money Through Shorter Classes

From ECS:

Arizona State University To Offer More Short Classes
The 15-week semesters are a long-standing tradition on university campuses. But Arizona State University plans to add more courses that can be completed in half of that time. By squeezing just as many class hours into a 7 1/2-week course, students could finish a course faster, graduate faster and pay less in tuition. The university’s bottom line could benefit if enrollment increases. (Arizona Republic, 02/22/11)
