Do-it-yourself – Using Available Survey Platforms to Build & Test Digital Interventions
Want to deploy digital health interventions by your own but uncertain where to start? This is the webinar for you.
In this webinar, ISRII researchers will showcase research projects in which they built and test an entire intervention using commonly accessible survey platforms (like Qualtrics, Lime-Survey, Survey-monkey, and Red-Cap).
Or in short, learn how to do it yourself!
The topics covered will include:
- Case studies showcasing interventions that were built and tested using survey platforms.
- Creating interventions that resemble mobile apps and making them downloadable through the Google Play Store.
- Implementing both single- and multiple-session interventions.
- Measurements and testing.
- Creating if-then statements to deliver tailored/personalized interventions.
