You've probably read dozens of paragraphs on how the next great theater of war will be online rather than offline, and how China and the US are already battling each other for cyber supremacy.

"We are learning more and more about who enrolls in Massive Open Online Classes (MOOCs) and how those students behave. For example, Harvard and MIT recently released de-identified data from their first 16 MOOCs that ran in 2012-2013 (read more about the Harvard and MIT data setshere and access the actual data here). The data set includes several variables relating to student activities – for example, whether students visited the course website, watched videos, or completed exams. These types of measures can tell us a lot about what students do, but it is not clear how much they learned as a result of those actions."
