Welcome to REDCap!
REDCap is a mature, secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases.
Using REDCap's stream-lined process for rapidly developing
projects, you may create and design projects using 1) the online method from your web browser using the Online Designer; and/or
2) the offline method by constructing a 'data dictionary' template file in Microsoft Excel, which can be later uploaded into REDCap.
Both surveys and databases (or a mixture of the two) can be built using these methods.
REDCap provides automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to Excel and common statistical
packages (SPSS, SAS, Stata, R), as well as a built-in project calendar, a scheduling module, ad hoc reporting tools,
and advanced features, such as branching logic, file uploading, and calculated fields.
REDCap 101 training is currently being taught twice a month, one traditional classroom and one webinar.
To register for REDCap classroom training log into the UCSF Learning Center web site (must have UCSF or Provider ID) and search for "REDCap 101" : UC Learning Center
