While traditional universities tinker, the world is changing outside their walls. Case in point: this announcement from Coursera that the MOOC company is partnering with Facebook on a Social Media Marketing Professional Certificate. Now sure, the certificate is only 20 weeks and probably not worth very much. But compared to traditional universities it's quick and cheap and will serve quite well in markets where getting an Ivy League education is just a pipe-dream.
