I am an ODK Champion here in the Philippines. I am working as a Teacher at the Visayas State University, situated in the province of Leyte, Eastern Visayas Region of the Philippines. I started using ODK way back 2017 in our one of our research projects. Until such time that I've been so familiar to it, and been using the suite in our other research projects for the data collection up to this time. And I am one of the pioneer users of ODK here in our university.
Fortunately, a new socio-economic research center was established in our school funded by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) -PCAARD and it is named as "Visayas Socio-economic Research and Data Analytics Center" or ViSERDAC, one of the three socio-economic and data analytic centers established in the Philippines (the other two is in Luzon (UPLB) and in Mindanao (UP Mindanao). Philippines is comprised of 3 major regions, the Luzon region which is the upper portion of the country, the Visayas region, located at the center portion and the Mindanao, the lower geographic portion of the country). The socio-economic research center is focused in capacitating socio-economic research, development and extension projects in the region, and we all know that most socio-economic research/studies requires massive data collection on the target areas/field. Luckily, I was the one being contracted for conducting a training on gathering data in a digital way (since I am a tech-savvy person), and since I am very much familiar with ODK, I've introduced the ODK tool on their series of seminar-workshops. I think, I've lectured on their several training's for around third times already. And I was been talking all about ODK throughout those seminars, and trained the participants on how to use ODK, esp the ODK Suite 1 for collecting data. With that, the center also contracted me to create an ODK manual or a training module, and I've already created it, though not yet finalized but more or less, it's near to completion. And I just wanted to inform you all, the whole ODK community about it and maybe, if somebody can look at the material that I've created, to criticize or correct should there be any mistakes I had committed on the material. Also, I am eager to share the material so that newbies can have a sort of a guide on how they can use the basic functions of ODK Suite. The manual I've created was detailed and comprehensive so that anybody who reads it, will easily understand it, and use the tool immediately at their own pace. I have also provided introductions about the tool, where and how did it started, advantages and disadvantages, similar platforms, value added services, and alike. That's why, I wanted somebody from the ODK pro's here to look at the manual/training module that I've created for it to be available to everybody as soon as it is possible. Though I have that idea of posting it here, but perhaps, I think it would just be better to post it later, once it is almost final. And for those who wish to see the manual I've crafted, just PM me to see and proofread my work. It would be highly appreciated.
PS: The server I have discussed on the training module/manual is through Google Sheets, but I have also discussed thoroughly what are the other ways (such as the ODK Aggregate).
