You may find yourself wondering just how much participation is persisting in the the current iteration of the Mechanical MOOC Gentle Introduction to Python Course. I know we do. Here’s a chart with some answers:
As can be seen above, peak opens for course emails started at just under 500 for the first few mailings, dropped to around 300 through the middle of the course, and dipped slightly after out break week. This would seem to indicate a relatively stable population of learners in the 300-400 range (assuming not all of them are opening the mailing on the first day). Good to see the numbers holding up.
