Abstract

Survey is an effective way of collecting data from a large sample within a short time. Due to increased use of digital medium, online survey is gaining popularity among researchers. It enables the surveyor to collect data from any corner of the world. Though the response rate is lower than physical survey, online survey has several advantages. Hence, we felt the necessity of sharing the basics of creating an online survey with budding researchers. Google form is an online survey platform which provides the service of creating survey forms, receiving responses and analysis of data free of cost. We used this platform to describe an example of conversion of a physical questionnaire to an online form. Hope this miniature technical guide help the readers to know the basic skills to create a form online for their future studies.
