In March-May 2017, CareSearch hosted the Dying2Learn MOOC for the second time. The response was even bigger in 2017, with almost 2000 people signing up for the Dying2Learn MOOC.
They investigated issues, had thought-provoking conversations, and completed a variety of activities that got them thinking about death and dying. Over 12,000 comments were made during the 5 week course. It was engrossing, interactive and mutually valuable.
Learners had a chance to have a real-time online chat with Dr Christine Sanderson and Dr Peter Saul on Prolonging Life versus Prolonging Death. Participants thought about words we use to describe death, shared their favourite death and dying movies, considered what to do with their digital legacy, and pondered what the future of death might look like in 2050.
