When teaching at scale…

be flexible, but stick to your course design
be clear about what's (not) on offer
…and what's (not) expected from students
making connections will be different
teacher presence is different
peer feedback and assessment need practice
platform providers need to know about barriers
there will be many contradictory views

What we know about our learners
figures from our own surveys
No personal data is collected by Coursera at enrolment
Characteristics of the respondents to the Entry and Exit surveys were very similar, so we may have recorded data from a single population – we know very little about our non-active learners
Our pre-course survey was sent to 217,512 unique email addresses:
21% response rate (45,182)
Our post-course survey had 15,351 responses
203 countries represented
95% found the courses 'good', 'very good' or 'excellent'
course exceeded expectations: 32%
course completely met expectations: 45%
expectations met to some extent: 21%
did not meet expectations: 2%
