1. Problem Description

There are several videos around explaining how to create a survey with LimeSurvey. Unfortunately most of the are pretty outdated and old. We would like to have a kick-all video tutorial explaining how to create a survey that immediately will hook up people.

The Video should include:

  1. Creation of a survey, with an easy explanation of the concept behind it (Survey->Question groups->Questions)
  2. Creating the survey, explaining the most important settings
  3. Creating question groups and questions plus answers
  4. Showing off a number of question types
  5. Showing off how a simple condition is created.
  6. Activating the survey


It will be best to record each video section separately and then join the video at the end. Your will need to create a script for your video which includes all the steps you will be showing in your video and the dialog associated with each step.


2. Task Steps

  1. Create a script with dialog to explain what will be done in the video from start to end.
  2. Submit your video script to your mentor for review.
  3. Record/Produce each section for your video tutorial.
  4. Submit each video to your mentor for review.
  5. Merge your video sections into an xvid avi with mp3 audio.
  6. Submit your video to your mentor.
