    Moocs work best in the hard sciences where students’ factual knowledge, theoretical understanding, and problem-solving ability can be rigorously assessed. It is not even essential to finish a course if you can ace the final exam (without cheating). This is a great thing for the top .0001 percent scattered around the world, many of them not even in their teens yet.
