Knowledge, Learning, Community
There is a lot to like about this site, and even if it falls short of "creating a new paradigm for online education" it nonetheless provides a valuable service. The site offers five courses for now (logic, causal reasoning, chemistry, statistics and economics). There is an open version of each course (and I mean a truly open one, without registration or other special conditions) and 'academic versions' containing proper exams. The creators also intend to build a community of interest around each course, but the only evidence I saw of that so far is a sign-up sheet (on which you can indicate your interest in teaching a course). Via WWWEDU.
