Re: Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage MOOC begins today!

I am curious to know how many people took this course (either partially or all the way to the end to get a certificate)? Just trying to get a feel for how popular these MOOCs are these days in the WASH sector.

Do you also have a break-down of the countries for the participants?
