Avis sur RedCap
RedCap for Research Recording Surveys
Commentaires : Overall, RedCap is a respectable survey platform. It is user friendly, and manages and stores data well.
I like that RedCap is very simple to use. It does not have a learning curve for users, and the platform is very straightforward. I use it weekly to track responses related to research interview experiences. I like that you can copy and paste the survey link to distribute the form. The link can be used in many different messaging media, such as text message and email.
I wish that there was a better way to create a trigger for links to be sent, or continuous links to be shared on a defined timeline. For example, for this project, we have people completing surveys each time they complete an interview. They can either find the original email or message that contained the link, or I can share the link with them, but I wish that there was a way to preload dates in which the link should be shared, that corresponded with the times in which they are scheduled for interviews, so that it was instantly sent to them as a post-interview form.

Online Data Management System/Tool for Large Research Studies
Commentaires : Overall, this is a great application that works well with large datasets, including an assortment of options to be included under each survey response item. It allows for easy deployment through the use of iPads if your study allows for that use. This makes the survey administration extremely easy. Additionally, changes can be made to the surveys very easily.
What I liked most about this software was that it was extremely easy to use and ultimately did not require much initial training. It was very easy to amend certain surveys and data collection tools, and also very easy to export data in a variety of ways for ease of data analysis.
Features that would further improve this software would include a feature that allows for graphical images to be produced based on select data that is highlighted at one particular time.
Secure, multiple projects, options to mark records as complete or pending
Sometimes have access issues, would be nice to be able to tab records for easy return
REDCap and Research
Commentaires : I have been using REDCap since 2017 for the purpose of creating surveys to collect data from a variety of populations. It has been growing over the last few years and is constantly trying to improve.
I like that I can create data collection instruments for longitudinal projects or even short-term projects. The development of basic surveys is pretty easy and they even have a bunch of additional modules that can be added such as multilanguage tools, recalculating programs, etc.
I don't like the way they output the longitudinal data. It's difficult to categorize. I wish REDCap had some more professional development videos or workshops to teach the new modules that they create.
Wonderful data collection program for over the phone interviews
Commentaires : It is a wondrful program to use for out team in collecting information and works easily with the team being all remote and working from home.
Our company uses the program for data collections as people are interviewed over the phone. This allows us to set up a flow and prompt the team the verbaige to use and guides them in collecting information. As the interviews need revised it is very easy to do so. The information collected is easly moved into any spreadsheet we create.
You must save as you go because if you are idle from the program for too long it clears out unsaved work.
