Our goal is to help thousands learn to code Python, but also to better understand how large group online learning works, so we’ll be looking at questions like how peers in this community support one another, whether they are more engaged with the sites than other users and how well learners in the community have mastered the subject matter.
Thanks, and happy MOOCing.
