Class size: 10,000

The OpenStudy group for 6.00 Introduction to Computer Science and Programming has now eclipsed 10,000 participants. That’s a seriously big class. But what impresses me even more is the depth of interaction in some of the discussions, like this one.

Other groups are also growing at an impressive rate. 18.01 Single Variable Calculus has nearly 8,500 participants. 21F.101 Chinese I has over 2,000. Several others are closing in on a thousand participants, and all but one of the recently introduced OCW Scholar groups have attracted participants in the hundreds.
