Characteristics of online environments such as flexible delivery appeal to a growing number of students. The time it takes to teach and take online classes has been the subject of much speculation. The present study investigates the time commitment required of students in five courses, with particular attention to the online synchronous platform. Students made use of an online web-based system to log time-on-task for an accurate portrayal of workload. The results of this study indicate that student time-on-task was considerably under those expected, challenging common estimates of student workload.
