Just as a counterpoint, putting together a MOOC is a *ton* of work,
with (in my opinion) not much benefit for a topic like Haskell where
it is already possible to access lots of quality instructional
materials online.  I would rather see Haskell gurus put their time and
effort into producing more awesome code (or into curating existing
instructional materials).

Just my 2c.
