MOOCs Movement

In the past, university and professors focused more on research than teaching, especially in those research universities. Now, it seems to be a swing in pendulum with more focus on teaching than research, in HE and universities.  That may be good news to learners (and the MOOCers of edX, MITx, Udacity, Coursera, and Connectivist MOOCs – CCKs, PLENK, CritLit, Change11, FutEdu etc. who are getting HE for free). But would those MOOCs extend to research education at a postgraduate level?  I think this could be a huge market too, at Master and Doctorate level on an international scale.  Who would be the pioneer in this area?  Would it be Stanford, MIT, CIT and Harvard Universities?  What would be the implications with such postgraduate education?
