This is a one-hour session ideal for Monitoring and Evaluation professionals who are interested in learning more about relational databases and the link between a database and data collection apps.
Some of the points we discuss are:
What a relational database is, and why it is important for complete and accurate tracking of results
Compare Excel to a relational database
Differences between XLSForm (‘typical mobile data collection tool’) and the relational data model
How ActivityInfo’s integrated mobile data collection tool can bridge the gap more efficiently and improve data quality
Feel free to share this session with your colleagues:
The content is particularly useful to M&E practitioners who are responsible for designing data collection systems for their organization and wish to expand their knowledge on relational databases and how they are linked to mobile data collection and how this combination can benefit the way they work.
