REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, HIPAA- and FERPA-compliant, web-based application for building and managing online surveys and databases. Vanderbilt University developed REDCap, and the software and support are available at no charge to institutional partners: ECU is a member of the REDCap Consortium. ECU houses REDCap (the database and servers) which means that all the data is secure within ECU's IT infrastructure. Multimedia & Technology Services (MTS) administers the REDCap software. This software can be used for research, operational and quality improvement studies with the appropriate approvals.
*From the IPAR website: "Any person proposing to administer a survey to more than 200 ECU students, faculty, staff or alumni on University property and/or using University resources must obtain prior approval from the Survey Review and Oversight Committee. You should submit a request using our online request portal."
