Hi,

you can add the University of Poitiers, France, and especially the IAE (embedded School of Management) to your list. We use Limesurvey for courses evaluation, surveys of alumnii, student works, research programs ... And we usually really appreciate it, although the very last build causes me some problems at the moment !

We are using Lime here at LeTourneau University in Longview, TX for quality assessments and other various surveying needs. We're currently writing software that will make use of the Lime Survey Remote Control to automate end-of-course surveys. If it works well there's potential that many other types of surveys can be automated resulting in a lot of saved time and resources.

Hi,

I should add that Ajou University, South Korea is also using Limesurvey for to conduct both survey and experimental research. It has saved countless hours of coding pen and paper responses and has also proved to be extremely reliable (in fact, I can't remember it being unreliable at all).

Well, I may add the University of Bayreuth, Germany to the list. At the moment I know of three units working with LS.
The chair I am working for uses LS heavily for research and course evaluation. We do so since version 0.98 and have always been very glad with the capabilities of LS and the more then helpful community.

Ciao
Joe

Hi,

We are using Limesurvey since this year at the Catholic University Leuven,Belgium . It's both being used by students and researchers. We now have about 60 users registered about 30 surveys in development en 30 active surveys.

Things we work on:
. buffering mails from Limesurvey and spreading the distribution in time to prevent peak load as much as possible.
. thinking about a way to organise labelsets so that users a bit more

I'll also hope to contribute an "Export To SAS" module in the near future since most of our researchers use SPSS or SAS (or R).

Cheers,
Jan.

Hello world,

Just my two cents to say that Avignon University ( www.univ-avignon.fr )in South East of France is using Limesurvey too. Limesurvey is becoming the default software for surveys when few years ago students had to deal with Sphinx. University's IT is proposing pre installed instances of Limesurvey and I'm training students of Master 2 in International Commerce to Limesurvey (theory and practice).
Reasons for using such tool :
- powerful and easy to use software,
- Free (as in free speech) Software philosophy,
- Free (as in free beer) Software which is very convenient for students
- huge range of questions,
- theme creation,
- etc...etc...

May the Lime be with You

We are using LimeSurvey at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky, USA.

I work in a research department and we are using LimeSurvey to gather data from all over Kentucky. I have found it to be invaluable.

I figure the only reason someone would use another survey tool is because they haven't yet heard about LimeSurvey!

Hi,

I can add the Catholic University of Louvain at Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium) to the list. They used to have their own survey tool but recently decided to switch to (the much better) Limesurvey. A very good idea in my opinion!

Cheers,
urangel

We have been using LS at the University of Otago in New Zealand mainly for student alcohol use surveys. Our last survey had about 70 questions in 24 groups, lots of logic, and handled about 3500 responses without problems. At least one other unit is also using LS here but I cannot remember what for.

Before LS we had our own custom built web based surveys, usually involving copying and heavily modifying previous surveys. This was time consuming, error prone, and inflexible.

I chose LS for the following reasons:
- it's open source so I can fix problems or add features myself if I need to
- it runs on our LAMP stack no problem
- it's free...forever :)
- LS has more developers and testers than any other product I know
- LS has great community support
- users can modify their survey themselves
- there is no reason why I cannot export a survey and give it to someone else to run
- LS has more question types/features than any other product I know

The only reason I can think of for not using LS is if you don't actually want to run surveys, i.e. prefer if someone else hosts the product & surveys, but even then LimeSurvey Professional (previously LimeService) has the features and service at great prices.

The Office of assessment at the Georgia Institute of Technology have been migrating our online surveys from Perseus, now known as Vovici, and have been quite pleased. There are a couple of features that Perseus had that LimeSurvey does not, but overall LimeSurvey is a much better solution.

The Australian Catholic University (ACU - www.acu.edu.au ) uses LimeSurvey for research purposes and also for information gathering and surveying of both staff and students.

Here are the reasons we use it:
  • It has a good selection of question types
  • good access control
  • mostly is great for accessibility (certainly much better than apps like SurveyMonkey)
  • good survey template customisation
  • and unlimited survey creators and responses
We started using LimeSurvey nearly three years ago and now have over 90 staff and research students building surveys.

I am a prof at Arizona State University in the US, and I (and a few others) use LimeSurvey for research projects in the social and behavioral sciences. All profs who ask are given a virtual server, and we have the Installatron system set up, allowing everyone to quickly and easily install LimeSurvey on their server. It has worked out great for me so far!

Hi, I am student from Texas A&M university. We have been using lime survey for couple of years and have been benefited a lot from it. It is very easy to use and have a lot of capabilities and the best of all its free. I think this is one of the best survey tools you find in the market now.
