Here are the Week 1 statistics for this free online gamification course that I’m taking through Penn/Wharton School:
- over 71,000 students enrolled
- over 147 different countries are represented
- over 6,000 posts to discussion forums
- approximately half of the students are self-employed
The figures are incredible! I can’t imagine teaching 71,000 people. As a student, the numbers haven’t impacted me. One of the assignments is a peer-reviewed paper. We’ll see how that works.
Just thought I’d share.
