Seth Godin stepping into the MOOC realm

Following Seth regular blog, I saw that he is starting a variation on the Massively Open Online Class. Although it might not be strictly online, and he calls it Krypton Community College
He observes that there is a 97% dropout rate for classes such as Coursera. I can attest to this because I have started a number of them and have dropped out of all when I realize that I just had not accurately determined the time I had available.  Seth is looking at creating courses that are taught as people meet in small groups in homes. I have yet to read through all the information, but it is interesting. Check it out.
