What if MOOC courses naturally led to the start of virtual schools specifically focused in a particular area?
An explanation of this would be; say per chance that you want to focus on Technological Entrepreneurship and Management. You take an online course where you meet multiple people from across the world, some who have the same exact focus, and maybe some who's focus is computer science, or education technology, or information technology (you see my point). From here these students naturally link up with each other and already cross pollinate ideas which spur innovation and creativity, and along the way cause a shift of sorts toward a sort of program that specifically focuses on Technology and Innovation. The important aspect to this is having a broad group of people who may not specifically have the exact same degree, but have one similar enough in nature to be able to facilitate progression and inspiration. Simply put it would be a virtual tech school of sorts, which I think could possibly lead to the creation of various new ideas and even companies that before would have never been possible.
