There's a lot that fall outside my confort zone but fit squarely in my range of interests. What are you considering?

SRS1... your comment begs the question, "Like what?" What areas of interest might you pursue via a MOOC?

Let's see... I've already enrolled in a few and couldn't make the deadlines for quizzes and projects. It all started with Coursera's Human-Computer Interaction class. Then I tried to get through an Internet History class (also at Coursera). I've signed up for HTML5 game development at Udacity but haven't had time to watch the lectures. None of these were scheduled concurrently so I thought I could totally get through them... I was oh so wrong.

@SethBreedlove -- great tip about adding this coursework to LinkedIn profiles. A love of learning and desire to extend a skill set are certainly desirable characteristics for most any employer/partner.

That's a good point, regarding independent study. So I suppose another concern is that people who shouldn't be attempting to study independently will attempt to do so anyways when they can get online courses less expensively than from a community college.  One more consideration to think about in studying the MOOC model!

I could use some extra time to take all these courses. There are plenty on my 'to take' list.

@Noreen, community colleges better watch out. I think four-year residential institutions have something to offer that MOOCs don't and can't ever --- that famed experience of getting out of the parents' nest in a somewhat protective environment, with dorms, late-night study sessions, frat parties, etc. Community colleges offer cheap credits for working professionals (for the most part) --- a prime market for MOOCs.

That's true-some people need the structure of an actual class and enjoy the interactions of face to face learning
