Abstract

Online data collection is becoming an essential and efficient tool for evaluators, researchers, and other educators. This paper touches on elements of the rather short, but eventful history of online data collection. A brief review of the current literature is presented, followed by a list of pros and cons to be considered when stepping into online surveying. Finally there is a brief look at what makes the online survey run-a database connected to the Internet. For those who would prefer, alternatives to creating or hosting your own online surveys are offered. The paper closes with contemplation toward the future of online data gathering.
