About This Course:


The smartphone revolution has dramatically changed how people communicate, obtain information, and go about their daily lives, but how has survey administration changed as a result? This course provides an assessment of our current understanding of mobile-based survey administration, some developing best practices, and how other smartphone tools & apps might be used in place of traditional survey questionnaires. In particular, the course will cover several key themes:
  1. Findings and gaps in research on mobile-delivered survey questionnaires
  2. Differences in questionnaires delivered on smartphones via text, web, and apps
  3. Current state best practices in this area
 

Learning Objectives:

 
  1. Understand the key considerations in the uses of smartphones as a platform for conducting surveys (Web-based, SMS, & App-based) or broader data capture efforts.
  2. Identify areas where best practices are developing and where they are lacking.
  3. List some of the limitations of emerging technologies for understanding public opinion and the areas of research needed to further the field in this area.
