I'm running two MOOs at the moment, one private and one under
construction.  The private one supports Information System Management
classes at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) and has
fewer than 200 members -- mostly those enrolled in the classes.  Database
size 2.6M.  The second MOO is running at Anne Arundel Community College
in Maryland, intended to support several Internet based computer-related
courses there.  Current size approx 2M, 10 members.

I'm very interested in results of the survey.
