This is in French but has voice interpreters in English, so it is very easy to follow. The numbering of the weeks/sections is different than Coursera's, which is a little confusing but not major.

Very nice mooc, very intuitive, practical and well presented.

Really enjoyed this course it has equipped me with new skills to Manage our Protected areas more effectively. loads of resource materials and videos to guide you though.

thanks again!

great course.. totally enjoyed the house.
