MOOCs in India, Cont’d

    My take-away is somewhat different, namely that slightly more than 80% of Indians, and 50% of Americans who have visited a MOOC are under the age of 35. In order to draw any conclusions from this, we would need to know the relative percentages of the populations under that age. It’s roughly 25% in the US, and over 65% in India! In other words, the rates are about what one would expect given the demographics and relative access to the Internet.

    The numbers at the very top of the graphic, “0.08M” and “0.23M”… First off, they aren’t very large; that’s only 80,000 and 230,000 out of student populations measured in millions. Secondly, they appear to be swapped, as the left-hand bars are about 2.5 times as wide as the right-hand bars.
