On 30 March 2022, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the FAO-Regional Office for Asia-Pacific have recently launched two free “Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) using CSPro Android and Survey Solutions” for people who are interested in the basics of CAPI data collection and management, and also for those who would like to develop their own questionnaires and apply these skills to a wide variety of surveys.
The course was firstly launched in 2019 and it was very successful and led to the increase in demand from learners across the world. Therefore, in this year, ADB and FAO have decided to launch a fourth round of the two MOOCs free-of-charge.
The course will introduce learners to two free CAPI platforms being used by official data collection agencies across the world: (i) CSPro Android developed by the US Census Bureau, and (ii) Survey Solutions designed by the World Bank.
In This regard, we encourage staff in your organization who are interested in enhancing their skills in CAPI to register online at
