Kudos to Duke for giving us MOOC data!

Duke University has done a great thing in doing a really detailed report on their first MOOCs, including effort required to build the course.

One interesting data point presented within this persistence data was that, “25% of students who answered at least one question correctly on the quizzes during Week 1 were successful in completing the course requirements.” This represented 313 students from at least 37 countries, most of whom already held a bachelor’s degree or higher.

Duke also reported video views and downloads, which are one indication of student engagement. Throughout the 8-week course, there were 156,000 total streaming views and 179,000 video downloads, while views were ~1,000/week by around week 5.
