Organisations have moved from data collection using paper forms to using mobile devices. Instead of collecting data on paper using a pen, which is then manually entered into a database for analysis, data is input into a device which is then capable of exporting directly into a centralized database for processing and analysis. Mobile data collection offers the benefit of better data quality, speed and convenience, as well as being low cost.
In this course, you will learn how to develop survey data collection forms, deploying them on mobile devices, collecting data and managing the data.
KoBo Toolbox will be our platform of focus. It is the one of the most commonly used best platforms for developing mobile data collection forms. It is a free open-source continuously improved.
By the end of the training the participants will be able to:
Develop a data collection form in Kobo Toolbox
Implement skip and validation logic
Deploy the form into mobile devices
Collect and upload data
View and download data
Visualize data using reports and maps
This course is a blend of theory, practical and a project. It is delivered by experiences trainers who have a wealth of experience in the technology and field of data collection.
This course is tailored for individuals who are conducting field data collection activities in their organizations or for research purposes
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be issued with a certificate.
