Qualtrics, a free web-based survey tool available to UGA researchers, students, faculty and staff, will soon launch a new interface to help users manage survey data and projects.
The new platform, called Insight, will feature a new layout and design, as well as many features to better integrate surveys and research, as well as tools to display your data and create reports.
Some new features include:
- A new projects landing page
- A revised Distribute Survey page.
- The option to select your method of delivery
- The ability to create interactive visualizations to display your data
- The ability to create interactive online reports
- SMS texting and trackable links
- The option to draw your signature with your mouse
Currently, users can toggle between the new Insight interface and the old interface. Qualtrics has not set a date for when they will permanently switch to the new interface.
Qualtrics makes it possible for university users to create UGA-branded surveys, invite participants and review results. Users can choose from a library with more than 80 different question types, remind participants to take a survey and view reports in a variety of formats. The tool is frequently used for anonymous or personal surveys, advanced research with analytics, online course evaluations, student engagement and more.
Qualtrics is free for all UGA students, faculty and staff, but users must contact the EITS Help Desk to request an account. Faculty and staff who want to establish a Qualtrics account must contact their local departmental IT staff. If your department doesn’t have its own IT department, you may contact the EITS Help Desk to establish a Qualtrics account.
