This training will equip the participants with skills to develop, implement and manage mobile data collection platform using KoboToolbox.

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. Now a days, 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 KoBoToolbox

KoBoToolbox has been used to conduct one-off surveys, rapid assessments, baseline studies, project mid-term evaluation, project end-term evaluation, market research, during and directly following disasters, track outbreaks and in many other cases. This course is a hands-on, step-by-step guide that will teach learners how to set up, administer and manage a mobile-based data collection platform using KoBoToolbox.
