MITx - a sign of things to come?

There are lots of online reports today on MIT's announcement that they are beginning enrollment for their first automated online course which students around the world can take without any prior tests or assessment. Students will have a variety of channels to choose from as this course on Circuits and Electronics will use video lectures, weekly deadlines to complete homework, access to labs and discussion forums and regular exams. If successful, students will receive a MIT certifcate. Everything will happen online - including the awarding of grades.
