Skills Team Workshops

Using JISC Online Surveys tool

About this workshop

Workshop description

One way to issue a survey is to use an online survey tool. There are lots of free survey tools available but unless you pay for their full service, the functionality is sometimes limited. The University of Hull currently supports a site licence for the JISC Online Surveys tool to allow staff and students to create their own surveys. This workshop introduces participants to the tool so that you will be able to start creating your own online surveys.
