This was the strength of ARS Digita's approach.

They created a set of problem sets that you needed to "solve". Those 
problem sets were free on the web.
Then they created a camp where you could get together with your peers 
and work on the problem sets.

So what we really want to get to in the end is:

(1) A self study course
(2) A way to collaborate online to do the 'course'.
(3) A real-world get together to do the course.

Best of all worlds :)
