Update on e-Survey Solution Offered by ITS

In an earlier newsletter, we introduced the availability of an online cloud-based survey solution, SurveyGizmo, for subscription by departments through a campus-wide license coordinated by ITS.

This is an Internet-browser-based tool which offers a variety of features including-

  • Setting up of survey, quiz, poll and form can be done through a user-friendly interface and logics can be used in designing survey, quiz and form, e.g. skip Q2 if Q1 is null
  • Use of branded link starting with https://esurvey.hku.hk/
  • Out-of-the-box reports can show the quick results at a glance and if more sophisticated reports are required, a reporting tool is available to allow the configuration of other types of reports
  • Access protection using either shared password or one-time password

The solution has been further enhanced with HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) which can ensure data is encrypted during transmission.  Departments can use the branded domain https://esurvey.hku.hk for setting up survey/quiz with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protection. 

The initial subscription fee is HK$1,125/license which ends on 30 June 2017.  Annual subscription fee from 1 July 2017 onwards is tentatively set at HK$1,500 for a 12-month subscription.

Interested departments can get a free 1-week trial account to try out the tool before subscription.  They can refer to the user guide at http://www.its.hku.hk/documentation/guide/infosys/esurvey to understand more about this solution.

For enquiries on the e-survey solution, please feel free to contact the undersigned.
