Cyberspace, the final frontier

Thanks to a link from Snuze, I have begun exploring the big wide world of MOOCs. I dont know what makes an online course massively online though. How can something be more online than it already is? Is this the advent of Philosophy in Cyberspace 101?

Browsing the course options is fun. It's so easy to imagine spending 5 hours a week at most, in most cases, and gaining brand-new knowledge, maybe even a certificate (the price of which ranges from US$49 and up, btw).

Of course, the courses at EdX look fantastic, and there's also Coursera, ALISON, Udacity (computer science and programming stuff), OpenLearn, just fyi.
