Andy Szegedy-Mazak, the Jane A. Seney Professor of Greek, professor of classical studies, spoke about his experience teaching a massive open online course (MOOC) during a Academic (Technology) Roundtable lunch Nov. 6. Szegedy-Mazak is one of seven Wesleyan faculty teaching a MOOC throughout the Coursera platform. In early 2013, Institutional Research administered a survey to more than 200,000 students enrolled in Wesleyan’s Coursera course offerings. About 28,170 students, or 13.6 percent of those invited, participated in the survey.

According to the report:

* Wesleyan Coursera students reside in 171 countries and every continent other than Antarctica. One-third of all students reside in the U.S.

* 81 percent of survey participants who are U.S. residents age 25 and above have at least a college degree.

* The median reported income for U.S. respondents is between $70,000 and $79,900.
