SurveyMonkey licenses are now available on campus

The Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs has secured an enterprise-wide license on campus for SurveyMonkey, one of the most requested professional survey development software products available. 

SurveyMonkey is now available by request. The easy-to-use software features a rich library of templates, thousands of professionally constructed survey questions, robust analytic capabilities, and a wide array of survey development tools. SurveyMonkey also offers tutorials to get new users up to speed quickly. Users who are familiar with the free version of SurveyMonkey will discover the licensed version is far more flexible and powerful. 

The university’s SurveyMonkey license will allow users with enterprise-level upgrades to:

  • Add custom logos, colors, and survey URLs.
  • Receive response notifications.
  • Send unlimited surveys and questions and receive unlimited responses.
  • Use question and page skip logic.
  • Export data in CSV, PDF, PPT, SPSS, XLS formats.
  • Accept payments.
  • Integrate with popular collaboration apps.
  • Create multi-lingual surveys.
  • Track activity.
  • Consolidate and analyze data. 

For a SurveyMonkey license, complete a request form using the Office of Information Technology’s Cherwell portal. Users must also review and understand the university’s Acceptable Use Policies on software, as well as those on human-subjects research projects before sending a survey to the campus community or in association with any university entity. 

The SIU Carbondale Human Subjects Committee requires review of all human-subjects research projects conducted by individuals affiliated with SIU prior to engagement with subjects. This is a mandated requirement regardless of discipline or funding source. 

Best practice tips, along with other resources and online survey suggestions are available when building SurveyMonkey surveys.
