Bristol Online Surveys (BOS): An Introduction

2 hours

Bristol Online Surveys (BOS) is an easy-to-use service that enables users to develop, deploy and analyse surveys via the web. Widely used as a tool for research, gathering feedback and capturing management information, BOS sub-accounts are available free of charge to staff and postgraduate research students. This course will provide a practical introduction to the tool, leading participants through the life cycle of creating, launching and manipulating the results of a BOS survey. Through completion of an online module, participants will also receive advice and guidance in respect of their data protection obligations when using BOS.
