MOOCs: Disruptive innovation or just disruptive?

One of the big happenings in college ed in the last year has been the rise of massively open online courses (MOOCs), with several companies forming to offer education to anyone! anywhere! for free! It's a big and complex topic because of how different the model is from standard teaching, and it's relevant to sustainability (and to ESW, I think).

An article on the topic about professors, time commitments, and the role of content creators vs. distributors more generally.

Your thoughts? This ties into our upcoming discussion of The Way Out in that Hunter Lovins is helping launch some new MOOC-related content, seeing it as a way forward for high-quality and/or lower-carbon education.
