Data from totally 68 courses, 1.7 million participants, 10 million participant-hours, and 1.1 billion logged events are the source of the report. Some of the key findings were that in general at the start of the course approximately 57% was aiming to get a certificate, while 24% reached the goal. The respondents in the initial survey that did not aim for certificate 8% still earned one. Moreover, certification rates are high among those who pay $25-$250 to “ID-verify” their certificates.
