What is the typical ratio of computers-to-Keepod devices in Keepod projects?
The appropriate computer-to-user ratio depends heavily on the context of the project. For schools, we have found that one computer can serve around 25 students in a week. For community centers, we have found that users don’t need to use computers as often or for as long. Therefore, the optimal ratio for these types of projects is closer to one computer per every 90 users. For online university students, we have found that they need more time on the computer than typical students. Therefore, the optimal ratio for these types of projects is one computer per every 10 users.
