The University has recently acquired a campus-wide license for Qualtrics that can be used by all faculty, staff, and students. Qualtrics is an online survey tool with advanced features, similar to Limesurvey. However, some of its advantages over Limesurvey include better ease-of-use, better support, the ability to collaborate with users from other institutions, and a better mobile experience.
When accessed using a UVM account at https://qualtrics.uvm.edu/, Qualtrics has been approved for handling and storage of all Protected University Information except Protected Health Information. UVM is looking into signing a BAA with Qualtrics that would allow PHI – more information about that will be available this fall.
Existing departmental accounts will eventually be folded into the campus license, but remain separate during this transition period. For more information please reach out to SAA.
If you are looking to create a very basic questionnaire, we recommend Microsoft Forms (https://www.uvm.edu/it/kb/article/microsoft-forms/), but for more in-depth survey needs, please consider creating your next survey using Qualtrics.
