limited in scope.

Many of the institutions in the CISAER catalogue offer courses in several subject areas, so the 
sum of occurrences are higher than the number of institutions listed in the catalogue. This is 
also the reason why the sum of the CISAER percentages is higher than 100. 
Among the courses categorized as courses in computer and information sciences or 
mathematics, only 11 institutions reported to have courses about mathematics. Primarily, the 
mathematics courses were offered in addition to other courses about computers and 
information technology. These eleven institutions were: The African Virtual University [4] 
(Case Study 1), Helsinki University [32], Verkmenntaskolinn a Akureyri [41], Bergen College 
of Education [60], UNED [81], Brigham University [112], Heritage Online [120], Marcicopa 
Community Colleges [123], New York Institute of Technology [124], University of Maryland 
University College [128], and Virtual Online University [130]. 
Agricultural sciences (2 institutions) and Biological sciences (3 institutions) were the subject 
areas with fewest reported web offerings. However, there is a very broad range of subjects 
offered in online courses as shown in Table 8.
