Planning for Data Collection

About This Course

Master the basic concepts, tools and tips you need to create a stellar data collection plan for your organization in this course. Learn how mobile-based data collection can help you save time, reduce costs and optimize resources in your next data collection exercise.

By understanding the fundamentals of data collection, such as distinguishing between the information which is needed, the information which is available and the information which is useful, you can create an effective strategy to capture the exact data point you need for administering a baseline survey, conducting a market research study, implementing development initiatives or getting feedback about your services.

With mobile-based data collection, you can capture data in various shapes and formats, such as audio, video, photo, geolocations, etc. Automatic database collation and real-time flagging reduces data entry and data loss errors, while increasing the quality and reliability of your data

We will then move on to learning about the opportunities and benefits offered by mobile-based data collection as compared to paper-based data collection, such as better speed, higher accuracy, lower costs and lesser resources. This will be followed by diving deep into the different mobile-based data collection technologies, such as Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS), SMS or interactive SMS (iSMS) and smartphone based data collection apps, and evaluate the different advantages and disadvantages of each technology.
