What is KoBo Toolbox

Introduction to this course

Data collection has always been an integral part of development work. In the past, this task was performed with paper and pen, which made it prone to error, difficult to conduct on a large scale, and high in transaction costs.ICT tools such as mobile devices and software that allows users to create surveys, collect, manage and upload data to storage facilities in real-time, have reduced the conventional challenges associated with remote data collection.If you have always wanted to learn how to collect, manage and analyze project data using mobile devices, this training course is for you.
