Welcome to the Introduction to Qualtrics module. This module provides an introduction to creating and distributing a survey using the online tool Qualtrics, and uses the example of creating a travel preferences survey to demonstrate concepts. The idea is that you can then apply these same concepts to create your own survey.

If you are a Curtin staff member or student, you can access your Curtin Qualtrics by logging in with your Curtin ID and password (if not, you can create a free account). Once you have done this, you can use this module to work through the key features of the software.

If you have any questions about this module, please contact Library-UniSkills@curtin.edu.au
