Although the notion of incompatibility is implicit in the research on conflicting institutional logics, few studies explicitly address it. The chapter draws on the concept of materiality and theories of digital objects to explain how materiality affects the organizational templates and reasons for the conflict. The chosen context of Massive Open Online Course (MOOCS) contradicts the conventional organizing templates in business schools (BS) but it emerges a powerful force regardless. The focus on digital materiality helps us to elaborate the role of materiality in institutional logics. By juxtaposing and reconciling the substance of the physical mater and the substantive mattering of matter, the chapter enhances the definition and the theoretical boundaries of the concept.
