The second innovation that came to mind was the edX, https://www.edx.org/, site that hosts online courses and classes from partner institutions. A complete list of schools and partners can be found at https://www.edx.org/schools-partners. The site was founded by Harvard and MIT. It is a great resource for those wanting to experience an online class or add credentials to a resume. The site also has verified certificates and course series. I plan on trying out one of the introductory computer science class to get a feel of how it works.
