All courses are launched on the Coursera Internet platform. Taking a MOOC gives you access to 5 hours of video lectures divided in short videos of 5-10 minutes. You can test your knowledge by taking quizzes and exams, get access to further readings and interact on the forum with the course lecturers and fellow learners.
Currently, the courses Municipal Solid Waste Management in Developing Countries and Planning and Design of Sanitation Systems and Technologies are running on Coursera. You can sign up for free at any time and take the courses at your own rhythm. The courses Introduction to Faecal Sludge Management and “Introduction to Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage” will be launched in May and June 2017.
To take a course on Coursera, all you need to do is create a Coursera account (free, takes 1 minute) and enroll to the course. If you have problems to enroll, we recommend you to upgrade your browser or to open the course page with a different browser (e.g., Firefox or Chrome).
All course materials are accessible for free. However, we can’t offer anymore the free Statement of Accomplishment (SoA) for each course. If you wish to have a certificate for a course, you can purchase a Coursera certificate for 49$. If you have completed all four courses of the series, we’ll be glad to send you a free SoA for the series. Please find further information about the certificate and the SoA below.
Video channels on Youtube
Each course has a Youtube Channel where all videos are constantly available: Introduction to Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage, Planning and Design of Sanitation Systems and Technologies, Municipal Solid Waste Management in Developing Countries.
