Gamification Course - 71,000 Students!

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.
