Ok, I’ve learned the basics and checked in with IRB, how do I get an account so I can log into the Oberlin specific system?
Go to oberlin.qualtrics.com and log in using your ObieID. If you’ve never done this before, it will ask you if you have an account or are you a first time user. Select the appropriate option and accept the terms of service. This will create a user account for you with enough privileges to create a small number of surveys. If you decide to continue to use it after reaching your limit, simply send and email to email@example.com requesting your restrictions be removed.
Note that access is only for Oberlin employees and students. The license does not cover alumni or non-affiliated users.
