I know MOOC's are under a lot of fire and I've heard several arguments both for and against them. Some say they are a great way to reach people without access to a proper University and I've also heard that they are a meaningless waste of time. To each their own.
I have completed 4 courses using +Coursera
and I know that I am better for it. My outlook has changed and I have a new perspective on what I read and hear because of Model Thinking from University of Michigan. I have also successfully implemented some elements of Gamification that I learned from Professor Kevin Werbach at University of Pennsylvania. I could list specific examples of how what I've learned has already helped in my day to day but it would be rather repetitive.
It's fine with me to not have actually sat in a classroom or paid several hundred dollars per credit hour for standardized credits. I'm better for having taken the time to learn and use the material offered.
