The idea of science for all has reappeared several times throughout the past century of educational history in terms of augmenting science literacy and inspiring science curriculum reform. The hype around massive open online courses in higher education has been incredible. In 2005, George Siemens and Stephen Downes were at the heart of a new perspective on education that revolved around distributed knowledge with their idea of connectivism. Popular science fiction may assert that space is the final frontier, but many believe it is very much closer to home, namely, the human brain. Teaching and building effective learning environments in the sciences are different from doing so in many other disciplines and can be challenging. It is really an exciting time for science education. This is especially true when online and at a distance.
