MOOC on Open edX Outside the edX Consortium Enrolls Nearly 3,000 Participants


George Washington University’s first MOOC titled “Practical Numerical Methods with Pyton” has attracted nearly 3,000 participants in two weeks since the launching without any PR support or marketing campaign.

This course, developed in collaboration with several universities internationally, is being run on an Open edX platform.

George Washington is the only other U.S. university apart from Stanford with a serious Open edX deployment outside the edX Consortium.

This enrollment growth and the technical deployment has captured the attention of all the main players in the field, from Stanford University to the edX Consortium.
