      Apr 5 2012: Sarah this is a great question -- and we've been just blown away from the response -- our TEDinClass Conversations, for example, have been trending in the top five for 9 weeks straight, and each conversation is being viewed in up to 60 countries. And each conversation is reaching about half a million Facebook users via shares.

It’s been amazing.
