This is an interesting experiment, though you have to be in Boston to partake. "'BostonX' will run MOOCs at community colleges and libraries, making online education available to those who don’t have a computer or internet connection at home. Mayor Thomas Menino “envisions neighborhoods as ‘mini campuses’ around the city.” Anant Agarwal, edX's president, says that the program will allow people to participate and discuss online courses together at one location, taking away the isolation that critics of MOOCs say hinders online learners."
