      Introduction
      The ODK-X or rather ODK 2 Tool Suite is a new set of ODK tools that will co-exist with the existing ODK Tool Suite and is intended to address several limitations of the existing ODK 1.0 data collection workflow. This ODK generation comes with advanced features that will revolutionize mobile data collection technologies as we know them.
      The ODK-X tool suite is targeted at advanced users who are unable to complete their workflows with the ODK tools. ODK-X is a platform that will run your data management applications. With ODK you create survey forms that ODK Collect renders and are used to collect data and submit it to the ODK Aggregate server. In ODK-X, you create data management applications that consist of survey forms (similar to those used in Collect) as well as JavaScript based web apps that allow you to render a fully customized user interface and implement business logic in order to collect, manage, and visualize data all on the Android device.
      Notably one of the most interesting features is the ability to conduct longitudinal studies. Other features include: ability to easily customize all screens on mobile devices, a flexible user-directed navigation of survey, advanced handling of repeat groups, bi-directional synchronization of data across devices, advanced data curation and visualization on the device and row-level access filters.
      Who should attend?
      This course is suitable for people anyone with an interest in mobile data collection technologies and everyone working in:
      Impact Evaluation, Monitoring and Evaluation, Academic Research, Market Research, Field Research, Agriculture, Health, Education, WASH, Handicapped, Human rights, Emergencies/disasters, Advocacy, Education, Environment, Small business development, Community development, Rural development, Women, Youth, Population, Rehabilitation, Culture, Capacity Building, Appropriate technology, Income, generation, Private sector, Refugees/displaced.
