I have been reading critiques of MOOCS, of which there are legion. The best I have seen is here: http://edtechnow.net/2012/12/29/moocs-and-other-ed-tech-bubbles/. The bottom line for me is that there is no business model. Everyone teaching appears to be paid by someone else. This of course is a strength of StraighterLine -- there is a business model. I have to say I am insanely curious about the outcome of the College Algebra experiment from the perspective of the MOOCs. Will learners pay more for a name brand? And if they do will adjunct faculty earn more for teaching in the future?
