"College of the Future...."

In "College of Future Could Be Come One, Come All" (The New York Times, Nov. 19, 2012), Tamar Lewin documents and feeds the exploding interest in MOOCs (massive open online courses) as the "next REALLY BIG thing" in higher education.  The focus of the article is Princeton Sociology professor Mitchell Duneier's MOOC, which you can check out online (see above).  I wonder what the MOOC version of "College!" would look like?  Or maybe "Basic Composition"?  I can definitely feel the trend.
