Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) Movement and Academic Advising

Do you think MOOCs and related offerings within higher ed are influencing the kind and manner of advising assistance that students need and might change the direction of the academic advising profession? Is your institution involved in these kinds of discussions? How might the advising profession accommodate and grow with these changes to ensure that students continue to receive help in making well-informed academic decisions?
