ANU is currently accepting enrolments for its first two edX on-line 
courses: Engaging India and Greatest Unsolved Mysteries of the Universe: 

ps: My own view is that neither lectures, nor MOOCs (Massive Open Online 
Courses), are the future of university education. Lectures, live or via 
video, are a useful supplement to an education program, but are not 
essential. Lectures, and their on-line equivalent, should be offered as 
an optional extra for the mainstream of education, which will be 
on-line, task based and text rich.
