A lot can change in a year. Twelve months ago, the traditional universities were doomed, condemned to irrelevance by an onslaught of MOOCs. Not every last one of them was going to die; Sebastian Thrun said that perhaps ten might survive. This was not very reassuring for the executives, staff, students, and alumni of the 20,000 universities which don't fall into the top-10, when ranked according to the criterion: "Universities which will survive MOOCs." We haven't yet seen this category in the Times Higher Ed rankings, but we are sure its appearance is imminent.
