Using the Monitoring and Evaluation software ActivityInfo: three-day on-site Training

from BeDataDriven
Registration deadline: 19 Jun 2019 Training date: 24 Jun 2019 to 26 Jun 2019 More Information

The ActivityInfo team has designed a three-day Training for humanitarians interested in learning more about the software and the way it can be used for M&E and information management to improve decision-making, planning and coordination within their organization or a programme.

Following this three day training, participants will become more familiar with the challenges and best practices in the M&E field. They will understand how they can move from a LogFrame to an online Information System, and they will be ready to apply their newly acquired knowledge to improve their current M&E systems by using the software.

The Training is addressed to Information Management officers, Monitoring and Evaluation officers or people who work with data collection and want to start designing their own information systems using the software. It is also a good introduction for programme or project managers who are interested in getting hands-on experience with an M&E online tool or for capacity building officers who want to bring in a new tool in their organization.

More specifically, during the training, participants will learn how to set up their own databases, how to design their forms, how to collect data from their partners, how to manage their partners' access to data and how to create reports out of the data collected.

To provide high quality, one-on-one support to every participant, there will be limited seats available, so it is advisable to book your seats quickly. It is strongly advised to bring a laptop to benefit from the hands-on Training. The Training will be provided by the Training Coordinator of the ActivityInfo team.

Following the completion of the training, every participant will receive an extension of 2 months on their account on ActivityInfo so as to have sufficient time to apply all things learnt and invite other people from their organisation.
