Abstract
This chapter evaluates the design and delivery of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), ‘How We Remember War and Violence: Theory and Practice’, based on the findings of the ‘Unsettling Remembering and Social Cohesion in Transnational Europe’ research project. It briefly considers the development of MOOCs and the challenges of using online spaces to address different memory modes and difficult history more broadly, before examining the process of co-creating the MOOC, evaluating and comparing its three course runs, and assessing the efficacy of the MOOC in challenging established modes of remembering. Finally, it analyses how this engagement with academic research in Memory Studies helped to shift participants’ perceptions of the social role of remembering.
