UNC computer science Professor Kris Jordan will follow you back on Twitter — along with all 944 of his other students.
Since Jordan began his teaching career at UNC last fall, the number of students enrolled in COMP 110 has increased every semester.
"I kinda set my eye on maintaining the course size that we offered last fall and spring, but knew that we would need to grow again this fall," he said. "All the prep work that myself and undergraduate TA's put in over last semester and over the summer was geared towards thinking and knowing that our enrollment size was going to grow by 60 percent."
There is a total of 945 seats available for COMP 110 this semester with students still trying to enroll in the class.
Last year the COMP 110 team tried to combat the large class sizes by implementing recitations, but ended up deciding against them due to the amount of recitation sections that were needed for the large number of students.
The next largest course compared to Jordan's is Senior STEM lecturer Kelly Hogan's biology class, which has 626 seats available.
"One of my favorite things about last fall was that I got to know the name's and faces of the majority of my 250 students," Jordan said. "Growing to 580 last spring and then 945 students this fall, that wasn't sustainable. Over the summer I developed a system that allows me to connect every student in the class with two members of my TA staff."
For all sections of COMP 110, there are 52 teaching assistants that help Professor Jordan, making it so there are more TA's for COMP 110 than in all other computer science courses combined.
When students enrolled in the class they had to create a profile which matched them with two TA's, who are the first to answer students' questions and make sure they get the assistance they need.
