TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO FAECAL SLUDGE MANAGEMENT
It is an amazing course, I enjoyed quite new topic soo far and I loved the way of teaching of mentors in course. Thank you coursera for giving me an opportunity to better understand the new knowledge.
Really enjoyed this course, which was professionally presented and facilitated. Great overview of FSM and hub of information.
Provided a great overview of the topic. Great support for a manager trying to gain perspective on the complexities of FSM and sanitation systems.
It was an excellent learning opportunity with a new challenging field of research. I am keen to register more subjects in the future in related subjects under your mentoring. RegardsDr. Bhaskar Das
