BU Global Health Students Reflect on ODK

Christopher Gill is an Associate Professor of International Health at
Boston University (BU). After experiencing a year delay between when a
study ended and when he got data, Chris started looking for a easy,
free, and user-friendly program to collect study data.

As part of those explorations, Chris found Open Data Kit and recruited
School of Public Health (SPH) students Marion McNabb and Laura Khurana
to train fellow BUSPH students on how to use ODK. The students have
put some of the discussions they had, forms they created, and feedback
they had about ODK at
https://bu.digication.com/IH743/Building_and_Collecting_Data_on_a_Smartphone.
If you are thinking about implementing ODK for a global health
research project, it is a great to start.
