Keep on rockin’ in the (open) world
August is usually kind of a sleepy month for MIT OpenCourseWare traffic-wise, with folks in many parts of the world enjoying vacations and schools being out of session. This makes it all the more surprising that MIT OpenCourseWare set a monthly traffic record last month, with more than 1.6 million visits. We also topped 1 million monthly unique visitors for the first time. The final numbers:
Unique Visitors: 1,015,112
Ave. Visitors per Day: 51,695
Articles from Lifehacker, Hacker News and TIME helped, as did significant traffic from reddit.com and stumbleupon.com. Good momentum to carry into fall.
