    Abstract

    Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are freely available, short online courses that are available to anyone to participate in • There has been a surge in the popularity of MOOCs and how they can be used to not only create social networks and engage participants, but to impart important messages, provide resources, and facilitate research opportunities. There is little known about Australian attitudes to death and dying and about the role of online environments in discussions around death and dying. • Understanding attitudes to death and dying is important as it can facilitate community acceptance of death as a normal part of life and encourage open discussion about death preparedness and planning.
