Introduction to REDCap Workshop

  • February 10, 2020 • 10 AM – 12 PM
  • Olin Library, Instruction Rm. 2

Join us for an interactive workshop geared towards people who are new to REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture).  The workshop will provide a general overview of REDCap as well as hands-on activities where attendees will learn to create a data collection instrument, add data records, enter data, and export data to Excel or common statistical packages.

Free and open to the Washington University community.

Registration required

REDCap is a secure, web-based application for building and managing online databases and surveys, but you do not need web development or computer programming experience to use REDCap. REDCap has built in quality assurance/quality improvement features and is HIPAA and HRPO compliant.  If you have a WUSTL Key, you can use REDCap for free!

Who should attend?

  • People with no knowledge of REDCap but are interested in a different data management tool than they are currently using.
  • People who have heard of and are interested in using REDCap but do not have an account.
  • People who have used REDCap but aren’t completely comfortable building projects.
  • People starting to use REDCap who learn better in a classroom setting than individually using online videos and FAQ pages.

If the class is full, register to be on the waiting list and we will add more workshops based on demand.
