There was some discussion at today’s CO Forum about quick ways of creating simple web forms for collecting information from people which admin offices can then use. Some suggestions:
From Tim: Moodle’s Quiz feature is shown on
The final screen dump shows how the replies can be exported as CVS etc. Access to the “Quiz” and replies uses the usual moodle mechanisms.
And he also mentions that “Rather more excitingly, there’s
to create, in a Scratch-like way, android apps that use a database to store/retrieve”
Stephen S had done a leave form for the Teaching Office web site (http://teaching.eng.cam.ac.uk/node/524). This shows the user data entry bit but he also showed me the page which the Teaching Office can use to look at and export the data and modify the form. It’s pretty flexible.
We also discussed the possibility of using survey type software and a possible locally hostable option that I looked at a bit ago for something else is Lime Survey.
And there are also forms like the helpdesk one on this site though I don’t know how flexible or otherwise these are.
