OpenStudy early returns

Just returned from a vacation and took a peek at the OpenStudy courses. Thrilled to see the uptake on the channels:

MIT 6.00 Intro Computer Science – 726 subscribers
MIT 18.01 Single Variable Calculus – 649 subscribers
MIT 21F.101 Chinese I – 88 subscribers

Beyond the number of subscribers, the amount of discussion underway is really impressive. A good start for this pilot.
