Chris Carter's insight:

I believe that it is not too early to introduce this topic to high school students. If they have a website project, certainly. They already contemplate clothing style and choice, and typically choose a consistent look to communicate their brand to the world. Introducing this same concept for websites may allow a discussion of personal brand, appearance, messaging ... an opportunity to address self-representation.

While highlighting the obvious benefits of MOOCs for self-motivated individuals, this aricle does a nice job of also explaining the importance of face-to-face interaction with the instructor for many students to succeed.  Blending MOOCs with other forms of delivery may be a way for MOOCs to move forward with lower dropout rates.
