REDCap is a secure, web-based application for building and managing online surveys and databases. Using REDCap’s stream-lined process for rapidly developing projects, you may create and design projects using 1) the online method from your web browser using the Online Designer; and/or 2) the offline method by constructing a ‘data dictionary’ template file in Microsoft Excel, which can be later uploaded into REDCap. Both surveys and databases (or a mixture of the two) can be built using these methods. If you have questions about REDCap, there are several videos and a Help & FAQ tab on its main page. There are also detailed descriptions for some of the most requested tasks available here.
Presentations about REDCap and it’s place as a research tool are given frequently. If you are a group, department etc. that would be interested in a presentation, you can contact Bernie LaSalle at 801-213-4093.
