Organizations traditionally invested in collecting data face-to-face focused on learning and adaptation this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While very challenging, it is a process of adapting to new circumstances that bore lessons in resourcefulness. One important lesson focuses on the different modes of data collection that can be used and combined for more strategic and economical project planning.

We’ve covered a variety of topics in our webinar series this year, and now we are tying it all together in two concrete data collection scenarios in this webinar. A member of our expert support team will moderate a 20-minute presentation and then open the floor to discussion and questions. If you miss the live webinar, you can watch the recording that we’ll post in our video library.

In this webinar we will discuss lessons learned and demonstrate SurveyCTO features to support remote data collection based on the two following scenarios:

Use case 1: Government health facilities around the country have been tasked with providing screening and testing for COVID-19. A broad range of data points are crucial to observe as independently as possible and track over time concerning medical supplies and personal protective equipment.

Use case 2: An organization with a mandate to grow the capacity of small farmers is looking to implement and track an intervention. Qualified small farmers must be recruited, with their farms evaluated, and tracked over time to evaluate outcomes.

Participants will gain technical knowledge using multiple data collection methods as well as have the opportunity to discuss best practices and challenges within these two use cases.
