Peter Mellow's insight:

Last paragraph in the Excutive Summary:

 

"The greatest value of the disruptive education revolution led by MOOCs is that it is forcing universities to focus on their core competence for which they have long been revered and cherished. That core competence, to paraphrase Plutarch, is to kindle the fire to learn in young minds."

Why Haven't MOOCs Eliminated Any Professors?

Why Haven't MOOCs Eliminated Any Professors? | Learning with MOOCs | Scoop.it
There are other ways that MOOCs may convert non-matriculated individuals into enrolled students (and hence drive demand for faculty).  MOOCs may be on the cusp of rewiring the admissions funnel for graduate programs.  We could plausibly see a move away from an emphasis on Google AdWords as the primary awareness building, aggregation, and sorting mechanism for (masters level) graduate programs - replaced by accelerated (and more affordable) admissions pathways through programs like edX’s Micromasters.  https://www.edx.org/micromasters
Am I right? Have MOOCs enlarged, rather than shrunk, the higher ed pie?  
Could MOOCs actually be good for professors?

Enter the Compassionate Public Square for the Information Age | Technology and Learning

Like many institutions, the University of Michigan was inspired by the early aspirations of the massive open online course (MOOC) movement to democratize education and, in our case, to advance our mission as a public research university. We thought better of a big toe dip, saw reason for a deeper commitment to experimentation, and dove in head first for a swim. Many pushed for swimmers to pick a stroke and stay in their lanes. We prefer the flexibility of freestyle and open swim.
