outsourcing the un-outsourceable

I'm always amused every time I see an article which asserts that 'industry X is different, because you can't ship those type of jobs abroad'. I just encountered it in this NYT article, referring to education and healthcare. And to a certain degree it's true - they are more protected than some industries. But I think there's a train a-comin', signaled for example by the excitement among many about MOOCs, or massive open online courses.
