We all know MOOCs have become much more popular during the pandemic; this is the data to support the assertion. "The top three MOOC providers (Coursera, edX, and FutureLearn) registered as many new users in April as in the whole of 2019. Over the years, the providers have become better at monetization, but in terms of new registered users they had hit a growth wall, adding a similar number of users in both 2019 and 2018. The pandemic broke through that wall. Around 25-30% of their total registered users on these platforms came after the pandemic."
