KoBoToolbox for Efficient Mobile Data Collection

Mastering KoBoToolbox for Efficient Mobile Data Collection


KoBoToolbox is a free and open-source suite of tools designed for field data collection in challenging environments. With KoBoToolbox, Android mobile devices can be used for data collection and submission to an online server. This training aims to equip participants with the necessary skills to develop, implement, and manage mobile data collection platforms using KoBoToolbox.


In the past, data collection was a challenging and time-consuming process due to the use of paper and pen methods. These methods were prone to errors, and the data collected had to be manually transferred to a computer for further processing. Additionally, traditional data collection methods were limited in terms of scalability and often incurred high transaction costs.

Advancements in mobile devices and software have revolutionized the data collection process by enabling users to conduct surveys, collect, manage, and upload data to storage facilities in real-time. This has significantly reduced the challenges associated with remote data collection, making it easier and more efficient than ever before.

KoBoToolbox is a popular tool that has been widely adopted for various data collection purposes, including surveys, assessments, evaluations, market research, disaster response, outbreak tracking, and more. With KoBoToolbox, users can design customized surveys, collect data using Android-enabled mobile devices, and upload the data to an online server for further analysis.

This hands-on course provides learners with a step-by-step guide to setting up, administering, and managing a mobile-based data collection platform using KoBoToolbox. The course covers topics such as survey design, data collection using mobile devices, data management and analysis, and data visualization. By the end of the course, learners will have acquired the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully conduct remote data collection using KoBoToolbox.
