By the time we started using Racket, I would say around 5000 students were participating in some way without about half turning in the homework.  But prior to that there was some level of interest in the course (meaning "clicked on a web page somewhere") from 30,000-75,000 people depending how you count.  And surely many of them thought, "SML, Racket, and Ruby... hmm, I've heard of one of those before".

I saw at least one question on IRC, FWIW.
