Other online survey tools

If you are an employee wanting to conduct a survey outside of Mohawk purposes; or you are a student conducting a survey as part of a course project, you can use any one of these tools.  However, Mohawk’s Institutional Research (IR) department does not provide any support services for these tools. 

Due to differing data and privacy laws, it is a best practice to use an online survey tool that host/stores their survey data on Canadian servers.  Although not exhaustive, some examples of such tools are below.
