You can take any of these course completely for FREE. These course currently do not get you college credits, but it looks like in a not to distant future universities will give students college credit for completing MOOCs successfully. Will this take a big bite out of community colleges and their market segment?

Are MOOCs the future of online learning? Are they good, bad, neither?
