  47. 47. What about a 100,000-Student Classroom? In the fall of 2011 Peter Norvig taught a class with Sebastian Thrun on artificial intelligence at Stanford, which was also offered online for free. Over 160,000 students from more than 190 countries enrolled for the online course. http://www.ted.com/talks/peter_norvig_the_100_000_student_classroom.html
  48. 48. More Importantly… 23,000 students passed the online course (253 got perfect scores). Professor Thrun has taught more students the subject than all of the rest of the computer science professors in the world. The 23,000 who passed the course represent more students than most faculty will teach in their career. Out of the 200 Stanford students attending the traditional course, only 41 were in class at the end of the course. The other 159 opted for the online asynchronous presentation. 410 online students outperformed the top Stanford student! Students are teaching students (Q&A ranking system). Students themselves translated the class for free from English into 44 languages. The on-campus passing rate was the highest ever.
