- [Voiceover] Hi and welcome to Up and Running with Online Surveys. I'm David Rivers. In the days before the advent of the worldwide web, surveys were typically conducted with pencil and paper. Now with the ability to conduct surveys online, we can gather information very quickly and at a relatively low cost. In fact, quite often, at no cost at all. We'll begin with an introduction to online surveys including what they are exactly. Some practical uses for online surveys, and how to build a business case for using online surveys.

Then, it's on to a quick overview of five of the top online survey tools you can access for free. Like SurveyMonkey, QuestionPro, and SurveyGizmo.
