Who enrolled in U of T MOOCs and why?

Are you surprised that about 70% of all those enrolled in U of T MOOCs already had undergraduate or graduate degrees? And that the primary reasons for enrolling in courses was to further job-related skills and/or because the course looked like fun?

These initial demographic trends remind us that there are many reasons that people sign up for MOOCs. They may take a little or a lot from the program. They may only watch one or two videos — and get precisely what they needed or wanted. They may complete the entire course and seek credentials. Or not.
