#survivephd15 - the first day

Our MOOC opened this morning - it was madness, but in a good way. Here's what happened...


  1. People got up early (or stayed up late) to join us at launch time. We were fired up on coffee.... here's one of our moderators, @katiedigc with her breakfast :-)
  2. Other people had different beverages and locations...
  3. We were so happy to see people sharing a bit about themselves and where they live. There are people from many countries and timezones. Some people even showed us their pets!
  4. So far people seem to be enjoying #survivephd15 - thanks for all the great feedback guys. The team worked hard and this kind of feedback makes it all worthwhile. As @katiedigc said "the circle of niceness just got bigger"
