In this webinar, you’ll learn the basics of pre-loading data in a SurveyCTO form design. You’ll see how to pre-populate a form with descriptive information to help enumerators confirm that they’re talking to the same respondents from a baseline interview.
Get introduced to SurveyCTO Desktop, the most flexible and powerful way to centralize your work, export your data, manage projects, and work offline.
SurveyCTO 2.60 introduces new features and key improvements that enhance the look, functionality, and accessibility of your SurveyCTO experience, no matter how you use the platform.
In this second installment of SurveyCTO’s webinar series, we show you how to update your household rosters by combining baseline and endline household rosters into one list in the SurveyCTO platform. We do so by assembling a choice list that captures all the members of a household, both new and previous. This choice list can be created in an endline survey, as well as in any midline surveys.
SurveyCTO is the most reliable, secure, and scalable mobile data collection platform for researchers and professionals working in offline settings.
In this webinar, we walk through a household survey example where we first create a roster of household members, followed by two rosters that match spouses to each other and children to parents. Lastly, we store those connections.
Machine learning is not like blockchain: there’s something useful there, beyond the hype. That’s why we've been quietly working on our machine-learning roadmap for quite some time already...
Here at Dobility, we’ve always taken an approach to data security grounded in the moral obligation to protect privacy and honor confidentiality pledges. For us, that moral obligation was always binding. But with the arrival of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), this obligation becomes legal as well – at least where the private or sensitive data of EU citizens is concerned...
Dobility founder and CEO Dr. Christopher Robert discusses the role of business in social impact, what it means to stay "lean" as a social enterprise, and the opportunities afforded by digital data collection on The Impact Podcast with Innov8social's Neetal Parekh.
In this week's Terms of Reference podcast by Aidpreneur, Dobility founder and CEO Dr. Christopher Robert tells the SurveyCTO origin story (fun fact: it involves squirrels), discusses why he founded Dobility as a for-profit company, and provides a critical analysis of the development landscape.
The true front line for data quality – the place where the battle for data accuracy is often won or lost – is the point of original data collection. This is the reason why we have been focusing our SurveyCTO efforts on how to help our users collect higher-quality data, and the reason why we’re painfully aware of the so many ways that we and our users could do better.
“Big data” seems to get all of the news and enthusiasm these days, but there is a quiet revolution in small data that is sweeping the world, sector by sector, organization by organization, department by department. Fueling this revolution everywhere is a new-found value in humility, iteration, and learning...
People have been talking about human-centered design for years, and there is always much enthusiasm for how the core principles might apply in the development context. In this blog post, I try to bring things down to earth, discussing ways that project and in-country teams might use SurveyCTO to put good design principles into practice.
It started as a modest experiment in electronic data collection embedded within a much more ambitious experiment involving microfinance in rural India. Today, SurveyCTO has grown into a mature technology platform used to collect data in hundreds of projects around the world. This inaugural blog post seems like a good time to look briefly back, and then forward to where SurveyCTO is headed...
