re: MOOCs Lead Duke To Reinvent On-Campus Courses
The flipped class concept is supposed to be that you view the lecture in what used to be homework time and more of what used to be homework in class discussion or collaborative activity. In theory, it should balance out. In practice, you're right, instructors need to think through the time demands and try to really get the mix right.

What strikes me is the time commitment for students. Where once class time covered the lecture, now the lecture must be done outside, plus the class time is not reduced. If all professors go this route, will students need to reduce their course loads?

re: MOOCs Lead Duke To Reinvent On-Campus Courses
A great example that MOOCs don't have to replace the traditional college classroom to be disruptive. If they can at least spur educators to bring some fresh thinking and approaches to those classrooms, they'll have been hugely influential. But MOOCs eventually will shake up the status quo even more, pressuring the higher education business model.
