WSD 2015 (17. 9.)

On Thursday, 17 September 2015, the event Web Survey Day took place for the fourth consecutive year.

The event was attended by around 200 visitors (compared to around 300 the previous year). Half of the participants were from the public sector, including education and research institutions, the rest were from businesses, non-profit organizations, students and others.

The event consisted of two parts. In the morning session, Dr Mario Callegaro lectured on the future of online surveys, then, together with Dr Katja Lozar Manfreda and dr. Vasja Vehovar presented the book Web Survey Methodology. In interactive sessions, participants posed questions on online surveys.

In the afternoon, there were four parallel workshops:

  • 1KA for beginners (Nejc Berzelak, Marjana Vrh and Matej Kebe), where participants learn the basic steps of creating their own questionnaire and implementing survey through 1KA;
  • A systematic review of 1KA’s functionalities (Gregor Čehovin and Miha Matjašič), where a quick overview of the basic 1KA functionalities was given;
  • Novelties and advanced functionalities of 1KA (Anže Sendelbah, Katja Zrim, Robert Šmalc and Barbara Brečko), where participants learn about innovations of the last year, including the functionalities that are being developed in collaboration with Arnes and the University of Ljubljana;
  • Own installation and own domain (dr. Vasja Vehovar, Peter Hrvatin and May Doušak), which was devoted to the technical aspects of own installation or domain.

Presentations and materials from WSD15 are available for registered users of 1KA here.
