Digital Curation Pre-Class Survey

Grant Hurley | BitCuratorEdu Project


This survey can be used to gather information about students’ access to technology prior to teaching technology-based lessons. This information can be used to tailor hands-on exercises that may require a specific technology setup (e.g., a Windows operating system or a computer with 8GB RAM) and to determine which students may need additional support.

The inventory is available for free download as a PDF or Google Doc, below.
