Using Mobile Devices for Data Collection: Exchanging Ideas and Models
Abstract: As mobile technologies expand, their potential uses as data collection devices increases. The authors have created a system that uses mobile devices to collect data for research. The design and implementation of this system was described and presented at E-learn 2009 . Since that time, eight questionnaires were created and implemented using this new system and over 500 responses have been collected. We are interested in speaking with other developers, researchers, and interested people about similar systems and procedures. We hope is that this roundtable discussion will yield different approaches and ideas for and about the use of mobile devices in data collection.
