Which free online survey should I use?

Third Year Dissertation students are strongly encouraged to use SONA to create their surveys for free, as this also gives a lot of help with recruitment. If you are not using SONA, there are other options. Most people have heard about Surveymonkey, but what about Qualtrics or SogoSurvey? As a student, you really do not have to pay for online survey software. You may find that the free version of Surveymonkey is too limited for your needs – if you do please click the link below for a round-up of some better free options!

Using iPads for qualitative research

Very interesting blog post here from Fiona Macneill (Learning Technologies Advisor) on using iPads for qualitative research, including using them to record interviews and focus groups, and the apps and hardware that may help.

If anybody is interested in using the apps mentioned here for dissertations or research please speak to me and I’ll get them installed on the Psychology Lab’s iPads. The lab is happy to lend students and staff iPads, mics, voice recorders, video cameras – just click view &  book lab resources to see what we can offer.

Free survey tools

I’m putting together a document comparing the free online survey tools, which I hope will be useful to students thinking about using them. I’ll post it here when it is complete. Although most people have probably come across SurveyMonkey for one reason or another, there are a lot of other free options out there, which depending on your needs may be better for you than SurveyMonkey.

Watch this space..

Hello there! This is the blog of the School of Applied and Social Sciences psychology lab at the University of Brighton. I’m going to blog on all sorts of topics relevant to students and staff. I’ll blog on resources and facilities, new equipment/services, in particular new psychological questionnaires and breaking news on psychological technology. I’ll put guidance here on research methods, study design etc and also post on interesting psychology studies. As I’m new here it will probably take some time to get fully started, please bear with me!

Best wishes,

Joe the psychology technician.
