Early analyses and anecdotal data support the efficacy of graduate engineering education delivered to off-campus students studying in moderately-sized groups with ``tutorial'' support. However, data now indicate that off-campus learners often study individually or in very small groups of three or fewer viewers. This trend will only develop further as increased uses of satellite technology affords teachers and learners cost-effective mechanisms of addressing the educational needs of single individuals spread throughout the nation. The following study addresses this concern by determining how well off-campus viewer/learners, studying in very small groups, perform in comparison to their on-campus peers.
