If you must conduct a survey or are planning to create a sign-up sheet via the web, you should know that there is more to the project than simply firing up Qualtrics or Google Forms and typing in some questions.  The Center for Online Learning & Innovation is creating tutorials to help you plan, build, deploy, and manage online data-gathering projects.  See our introductory video, “Data Gathering Basics,” for tips on how to prepare your next survey, sign-up sheet, or web-based form.
