About the course

CommCare is an open source cloud-based, mobile and web platform for non-programmers that lets you make apps that you can deploy on android devices as well as in the cloud and other cell phone devices. Data collection is a vital part of any developmental work. In previous year’s data collection used to be done on paper and pen which was prone to a lot of errors and difficult to conduct on large scale. However the current ICT tools now allows us to create surveys, collect, manage and upload data to storage facilities in real time. This training will equip the participants with skills to author, field and manage data collection using CommCare.
