In 1990 the Hubble Telescope was launched providing current and future generations of scientists with a view of the cosmos unobstructed by the earth’s atmosphere. Ten years later over 9,000 journal articles had been based on the science delivered by the Hubble. It is the main contention of this presentation that MOOCs (and other forms of Open Educational Resources–OER) will have the same effect on higher education research by providing “massive” responses to exactly the same educational treatments delivered in the same way.
