Web surveys have emerged as a highly popular method for data collection, characterized by their speed of implementation and cost-effectiveness. Their prominence has further accelerated with the Covid-19 pandemic, which posed significant challenges to conducting traditional face-to-face surveys.

However, like all survey methods, web surveys are susceptible to measurement errors, which can be exacerbated by the absence of an interviewer. This course explores innovative approaches to leverage emerging measurement opportunities, primarily driven by the widespread use of smartphones, to mitigate these errors and unlock fresh insights within the realm of web surveys.
