In the past few months, we’ve been developing our online simulation toolkit so that faculty can digitize their public policy simulations. We checked in with Joshua Yardley about his experience using SurveyCTO to run a pandemic simulation in the “Program Evaluation and Policy Analysis” course he teaches at Brown University and the opportunities he sees for using online simulations in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
After a successful pilot of a pandemic simulation using SurveyCTO earlier this year, members of our team had the pleasure of participating in its implementation as part of the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) module “Fundamentals of Policy Analysis and Decision Making,” a required course for 250 Masters in Public Policy students.
This year, join SurveyCTO from June 7-9 at HumTech2016, the annual conference that brings “together scientists, engineers, technologists and policymakers from across academic, government, industry and non-government organizations to discuss, share and promote current research and recent accomplishments across all aspects of technology, from science to systems, that have a global humanitarian impact.”
Join SurveyCTO founder and CEO Chris Robert and other member of the SurveyCTO team for a presentation on digital data collection for development, monitoring and evaluation, and social impact hosted by Tech@Fletcher.
We’re excited to announce two major developments at SurveyCTO: our new drag-and-drop form designer and our new Support Center. Read on!
SurveyCTO has been the data collection tool of choice for J-PAL South Asia for several years now, enabling researchers to collect and analyze quality data on dozens of India-based impact evaluations. Hundreds of other J-PAL and IPA projects have likewise used SurveyCTO in developing countries around the world.
Let’s pick up where we left off in Part 1 of our survey design for quality data series, which was inspired by Dobility founder and CEO Dr. Christopher Robert’s presentation in the TechChange course “Technology for Data Collection and Survey Design.” Lesson 1 focused on designing your survey with empathy for field staff and respondents. Lesson 2 highlighted SurveyCTO tools for building in relevance and constraints. With Lesson 3, we’ll jump into a number of ways that SurveyCTO enables you to automate monitoring and workflow.
Last week, Dobility founder and CEO Dr. Christopher Robert presented on how to design surveys for quality data in the TechChange Course “Technology for Data Collection and Survey Design.” We thought it would be fun to share highlights from his talk with the larger community of mobile data collection users (while also showing off some of the cool ways that SurveyCTO can help you design smart surveys from day one).
In recognition of International Women’s Day, we thought we’d share two of the many ways that SurveyCTO partners have been using mobile data collection to improve the lives of women and girls around the world…
