Here's the secret to MOOCs: "Once you get past the corporate culture  ("success coaches") and Valley buzzword  ickiness ("analytics-powered dashboard") and concentrate on the core structure of the experience, you realize this is how we live right now outside of education." Even the cMOOCs with gRSShopper and all that - they're designed to model the way we learn outside educational institutions. The way, in other words, we really learn.
