REDCap is n online application for building and deploying databases and surveys. REDCap is available to all Syracuse University students, faculty and staff. REDCap can be accessed at https://redcap.syr.edu/.
REDCap uses a two-step verification process to login. One method is to have a temporary verification code emailed to you each time you login. The other is to use the Google Authenticator app on your smartphone. Google authenticator is available for free through the iTunes and Google Play stores. We have an instruction sheet for setting up your REDCap account, courtesy of ITS. We also have instructions for backing up and restoring your REDCap projects, also courtesy of ITS.
REDCap has several training videos available from the Help link in REDCap. There is also the REDCap Community Website with several discussion groups. Other REDCap users and administrators have shared their training materials as well. The University of Colorado at Denver has several REDCap tutorial videos.
For questions regarding accessing or using REDCap, you can also contact Research Data Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
