    UD, numbers aside do you get much of a sense of the people involved (not so much their personalities but their engagement w/ the lectures)?

    dmf: It’s tricky figuring this out, but here’s what I think is the case: The MOOC attracts a lot of foreign students at the secondary school level. Maybe people preparing for national exams in English/American poetry? It also attracts a lot of American high school as well as college students; it also attracts curious artsy adults. I think many people give it a glance, and a few take it seriously and watch all/most of the lectures.

    thanks, been wondering about how the arts/humanities might play out in such ‘settings’, easy to imagine a coding class or some such technical/engineering exercises but harder to picture something that isn’t so hands (keyboards, etc) on.
