A Place for the Barack Obama Presidential Library?

The $64 Dollar Question
In ten to twelve years, a typical MOOC-delivered college degree will cost less than $999. That is the promise of MOOCs but, how will this actually come about?

Massive, open, online courses introduced by Udacity, Coursera and Udemy may save American freedoms by changing how education is delivered. Dec 11, 2013
