In this blog post, we reference SurveyCTO Sync. Beginning September 10, 2019, SurveyCTO version 2.60 replaced SurveyCTO Sync with SurveyCTO Desktop, the safest and most powerful way to centralize your work, export your data, manage projects, and work offline. We also introduced an iOS app for SurveyCTO Collect.
Dobility India is offering another chance for researchers and development professionals to get introduced to the most recent release of the SurveyCTO platform, as well as master more advanced features. The training will be led by SurveyCTO’s survey experts, who have vast experience facilitating trainings for organizations across India.
Who should participate?
This training is designed for academic researchers, research associates and managers, M&E professionals, NGO/CSR professionals, ODK programmers, and PhD students who are working on data collection and field research.
The first training, held on March 6-8, 2019, was attended by practitioners from UNICEF, American India Foundation, Educate Girls Globally, CORO India, Development Solutions, Christian Medical College Vellore, and other organizations.
What are the expected outcomes?
The training will mostly consist of hands-on practice and group work, along with sessions on theory and best practices for collecting high-quality, secure data—both online and offline. By the end, participants will be able to:
- Understand the benefits of mobile data collection over paper-based approaches.
