Abstract It' s clear that the landscape of the open education movement is changing every day. The history of MOOCs has been a fascinating tale of supply and demand. The need for open educational resources (OER) have been demanded from learners all over the world and with the immense supply of open educational resources available from schools everywhere demonstrate the importance of MOOC. In response to the ever changing OER movement, UC Irvine s Open Chemistry project leads the way in offering a full, coherent curriculum of lectures and courses rather than individual courses. Another major milestone for MOOCs is the opportunity for learners to earn credits for certain courses again furthering the possibilities of the OER movement by lowering the cost of higher education. Various plans and projects are underway to further explore the options of open degree programs and the many possibilities MOOCs can offer.
