Good to have a peek inside what's going on, eh?  Ready to take the plunge?

The greatest contribution of  MOOCs to education will not be the  demographic  and geograhic reach it claims to provide, but the disruption it creates on the limitations and previous beliefs of the instructivist pedagogy model. Data and learning analytics will document how the student, and more specifically,  how the brain learns.  The truism that "(s)he who speaks the most learn the most" will be based on data Collected and analyzed.  For now, we content that in teaching a class, that teacher has  learned the most. :)
