Academics might be negative toward MOOCs, but this is why I think they will be disruptive. In many fields what employers care most about is the skills and some of them are coming around to realize that they don't care where or how those skills were acquired. The computing industry has actually been like that for a while. People who have been self-taught have entered into it for many years. There are definitely still advantages to going to a college and having a degree, but the MOOCs reduce that advantage a bit.
