About this course

In the past, data collection was performed using 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 allow 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.

One of the commonly used tools is KoBoToolboxKoBoToolbox has been used to observe elections, monitor rainforests, track outbreaks,  conduct one-off surveys, rapid assessments, baseline studies, project mid-term evaluation, project end-term evaluation,  market research, during and directly following disasters, and in many other cases.

This course is a hands-on, step by step guide that will teach learners how to setup, administer and manage a mobile-based data collection platform using KoBoToolbox
