"Online learning is on the rise. According to a 2013 report by the Babson Survey Research Group, over 6.7 million postsecondary students were enrolled in at least one online class in 2011, compared to only 1.6 million in 2002, and 62 percent of the schools surveyed now award degrees entirely through distance education."

"Eventually, MOOCs will evolve beyond the delivery of online courses to becoming a pervasive resource where open access to cutting-edge university research (as well as teaching) will play a pivotal role in guiding the decisions of individuals in matters that affect their lives the most."  This is the ideal objective.  As the commenter said at the end of the article, the low penetration of Internet, language constraint, local knowledge, etc. are all barriers at present.
