ODK Workshop

Tuesday, March 24, 2015 to Thursday, March 26, 2015

Kibos, Kenya

An ODK workshop was convened to help projects that had previously expressed an interest in digital data collection take the next steps to use the android survey app, open data kit (ODK). Digital data collection is of interest within the CoP as researchers take the next step towards working with larger numbers of farmers.

Representatives from five project teams participated.There were two different phases to the workshop. Phase one focused on ODK essentials and giving people the skills and confidence they needed to create their own forms. Phase two focused on the co-development of a core set of survey questions around social context variables that Western Kenya based projects would collect, and potentially, share with one another.
