We used to do a "who uses drscheme" search on a reasonably regular  
basis. A couple of years back (2003?) we figured that between 60 and  
100 colleges in the US and abroad use drscheme for at least one  
course. In addition, we have trained some 500 high school teachers  
most of whom have used drscheme at once in their high schools. It is  
probably fair to say that each college represents some 100 to 200  
students and each high school some 20 to 30. These estimates are  
conservatives but you can adjust as needed. -- Matthias
