Wow. Three words out of his mouth, and I was already facepalming. Nothing within a university should be considered sacred. Respected, cherished, even priceless, sure, but not sacred.

This is a joke, right?

I love the concept of a MOOC. There has been a recent push towards education going online and this is the creative next step... though it is not clear if they will go all the way and have folks inhabit the gender roles as avatars. The "college age" are familiar with online MORPGS. Why not create an educational situation using these tools. Makes perfect sense to me, and for the minimal cost of a monthly fee, getting to "play" a college course would be a fun way to learn :)

@2 the "sacred" was spoken in jest and reflects the fact that "college" is "done" in a manner reminiscent of the middle ages more than the current world. This new process is groundbreaking and will scare the pants off traditional education providers if it works.
