More than 900 students recently completed an an eight-week massive open online course taught by College of the Atlantic professor David Feldman, part of SFI’s Complexity Explorer MOOC series.

The free course, “Introduction to Dynamical Systems and Chaos,” drew more than 5,000 students from 90 countries, ages 13 through 80. More than 900 students completed the class, an 18 percent completion rate — more than three times the average for similar MOOCs.

More Complexity Explorer MOOCs begin in late September. Register here.
