How do universities compete or differentiate from open course communities?  

By investing in a portfolio of public-private partnerships that are core to the mission of the university and of value to the economy.   NYC Media Labs is a single example of strategic public-private partnerships universities have established to provide students exposure to work opportunities in emerging markets. Universities, once defined by the rigor and focus of coursework, may also begin to strongly consider the extent and focus of applied research provided as a key differentiator.
