Water MOOC launching 26 May!

In the last few days we’ve confirmed a 26 May launch date for our first ever Water Supply and Sanitation Policy in Developing Countries MOOC (massive open online course). If you visit our Coursera page you will see this:


All you have to do is click on the blue bar, ‘Join For Free’, and you can now enrol right away!

Our MOOC is coming out of the University of Manchester and has been endorsed by the Global Water Partnership. Course leader Dale Whittington and I are really looking forward to it, and we’ve been busy preparing materials, as well as trying out how we both look on film (these pics are from the last few weeks):




We’re lining up some exciting special guests from around the world of water for the course too; details to follow once we’ve got them all recorded.

It’s a fascinating (and rather busy!) time but we hope to have a few more updates as we move even closer to the launch date…
