Is there a practical way to get large scale collaboration between the many different online learning services?

We all know of Edx, Coursera, The Khan Academy, online classes, ReCaptcha, and now TED-Ed, and we all know the subtle unique features of all of them. Is there a practical way to combine these different programs to make an even better learning environment for people of all ages and skill sets?

    Jul 23 2012: We can try a Wikipedia - Wikimedia Commons type model that pools all known courses online into a single site for reviewing, rating and sharing. The courses could be tiered from free Wiki style courses to paid premium courses and/or degree programs - like the Photosearch/Stock Footage companies provide. This new site would have to be a non-profit collaboration site or organization with global standards and a global body of volunteers editing, reviewing and monitoring it for abuse. It can be "open" until the point of transaction or direct experience.
