Salamu Alaikum,
I'm about to give a training workshop, for about 3 days / 10 participants, concerning the use of limesurvey to conudct web based surveys.
I want to know what is the best way (workshop lab preparation) to teach limesurvey.
I think of hosting limesurvey on a VPS so that people can learn while on the training session and exercice once they leave the training session (at the hotel room for example).

Thank you very much!

I never thought about this before, but here are my thoughts:

I would go for a good mix of theory and practice.

Of course first they will need the base to work with Limesurvey, then they should be able to do some hands on exercises. but it depends a little on the profile of the participants, what is their background?

All of them are statisticians, economists or sociologists
thanks in advance.
First I'll do a brieve comparison between free tools (MonkeySurveys, FluidSurveys,GoogleForms) to show them what proucts are available out there to conduct web based surveys, and then start with creating surveys/mutlilingual/conditional surveys, after that i'll go with restricted access / public / expirated surveys and i'll try to end with getting information from data collected with R-project/Shiny and LibreOfficeCalc

Sounds good.

Setting up a VPS is for sure a good solution, but you could also make them sign up for a free account at LimeSurvey Professional (previously LimeService).com. They can get 25 responses for free, the rest seems to be unlimited.

Hi,
Don't forget that there is a bunch of video tutorials about LS on dailymotion, youtube etc. ;)

You can also be inspired looking at some indexed .ppt files

From my experience users learn best by using the software. So how about preparing a simple survey of 8-10 questions. Hand them a paper version and tell them to build that survey using Limesurvey.
In this case a link to the Limesurvey question types manual page helps: manual.limesurvey.org/Question_types
