      Training on Mobile Data Collection using ODK

      CLICK HERE to register About the Course  Advances in information technology have opened exciting new avenues for how research is conducted and data collected, with huge implications to monitoring and evaluation (M&E). One of these advances is the use of Mobile Data Collection (MDC). Instead of collecting data on paper using a pen, which is then manually entered into a database for analysis, data is input into a device which is then capable of exporting directly into a centralized database for processing and analysis.  Open Data Kit (ODK) is a suite of tools that allows data collection using Android mobile devices and data submission to an online server. This training will equip the participants with skills to author, field and manage mobile data collection platform using ODK.  Target Participants  This course is aimed at organizational staffs who are conducting field data collection activities.  Course duration  5 Days  What you will learn  By the end of the training the participants will be able to: Create survey forms using Build or XLSForms Set up ODK Build, Collect and Aggregate  Upload forms to an Aggregate server Load forms into Collect on an Android device Use ODK Collect to fill out forms with field participants Upload survey data from Collect to Aggregate Export and Analyse data from Aggregate  Course Outline  Introduction to Mobile Data Collection Introduction to mobile phone data collection Common mobile based data collection platforms Data aggregation, storage, and dissemination Understanding question types forming a questionnaire Introduction to Open Data Kit (ODK) Components of Open Data Kit (ODK) ODK Form ODK Collect Application Interface ODK Aggregate ODK Manage ODK platforms and formats Setting up ODK Collect ODK Collect Installation from google play Manual installation of OK ODK Collect Menus, Settings and Security Best practices for ODK Collect ODK Aggregate Server Setting up own aggregate server using Google App Engine Configuring ODK Aggregate Server Setting up local server Uploading the form to aggregate server       Managing forms in Aggregate Working with submitted data in aggregate Administering aggregate  Designing and Creating forms using ODK Build Using ODK build Designing forms directly on: ODK Build Koboform builder PurcForms Uploading forms to aggregate Form properties  Designing and Creating form using XLS form Introduction to XLSForm Components of XLSForm Question types Form Logic, styling, language Form operators and functions Constraints & Skips Form validation Uploading form to aggregate server Using ODK Collect for field data collection Filling forms in ODK Collect Managing forms in ODK Collect Collecting different types of data Advanced use and best practices Submitting data to ODK aggregate Data Management Exporting data from ODK Aggregate as CSV Downloading data in different formats Formatting data for further analysis using statistical applications Outputting data through Google spreadsheet  Visualizing Geographic Data Exporting GPS Coordinates to Google maps  Exporting GPS data for Mapping/Visualizing Visualizing GIS data using QGIS   Training Approach This course is delivered by our seasoned trainers who have vast experience as expert professionals in the respective fields of practice.
