Introduction to REDCap
The REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) platform is a secure web application for building and managing research data collection instruments. The platform is specifically designed to support online or offline data capture for research studies. The UBC ARC REDCap platform includes two instances of REDCap are available to the UBC research community. We’ll cover the REDCap basic features that you may need to meet your research projects’ data collection requirements, that includes: building data instruments and surveys, preparing data set exports, and managing user access control. We’ll also share some creative ways REDCap can be setup to help facilitate your research data collection workflow.

This workshop is part of the RDM Fall Series 2020. The series is designed to be taken as a complete cycle, in order, over a three week period this fall. The sessions will build on one another using a mock research project and data, but we encourage you to bring your own project if you’d like!
These sessions will be presented by the UBC Research Commons, UBC Advanced Research Computing (ARC), the UBC Okanagan Library and the UBC Centre for Scholarly Communications. Follow us on Twitter with the hashtag #UBCRDM2020!
