EdX Insights
A new metric that measures total interest in your course over time is now available in edX Insights. The Enrollment Activity page now includes a metric for Total Enrollment (the number of learners who have ever been enrolled in the course) as well as for Current Enrollment (the number of learners enrolled as of the computation date, not including learners who have unenrolled).

^^?

The description is correct and clear. I'd like to add a bit more about the value--why should people care? Perhaps replace the first sentence with "We've added a better measure of total interest in your course to edX Insights."

ETA: Do we usually tell people about label updates? I would have left out the second paragraph...

EdX Insights

An additional metric for course enrollment is now available in edX Insights. The Enrollment Activity page now reports a metric for Total Enrollment (the number of learners who have ever enrolled in the course) as well as for Current Enrollment (the number of learners enrolled as of the computation date, not including learners who have unenrolled).

Labels in reports of enrollment data, including the Enrollment over Time report and the Geographic Breakdown report, have been updated to clarify which of these metrics is included.

, please let me know your thoughts on the above.
