Note: Please download Power point presentation for a training guide describing how to use KoBo.
KoBo is based on the Open Data Kit, and has been widely tested in extreme conditions for ease of use and reliability. The benefits of Digital Data Collection are changing the way that research is undertaken by researchers in many different fields.
KoBo has been used mostly for large scale population surveys in Africa, and the resulting reports have been used by aid organizations, government ministries, international justice bodies, and other groups concerned with human rights, vulnerable populations, and issues of transitional justice. KoBo runs on Android devices, and has been tested on the HTC G1, MyTouch 3G, Nexus, Wildfire, and the Galaxy Tablet. Surveys for KoBo can be written by hand in XML or using the KoBoForm Designer. For a brief introduction on how to run KoBo on a handheld device, and how to enter data into a survey, please see the presentation below. You may also download this presentation as a Power Point for use offline or in training your data collection team.
