Thing #19 Web 2.0 Awards List

I enjoyed exploring Wufoo. Wufoo is a tool that helps you collect data over the internet. You can create applications, surveys, invitations, registrations and online orders using their colorful theme templates or create something from scratch. It has a tiered pricing plan ranging from free to $199.95 a month depending on your needs. They will host all of your forms or you can put them into your existing website. You can organize your information by creating reports and building graphs based on the data collected. It has a great video tour that explains how to create a form.

I can see using this tool as a librarian to register families for campus events, to create questionnaires for teachers for staff development needs or collection development input. I think the report and graphing feature would be extremely helpful in using the data to make needs based decisions.

As a Kindergarten team, we could create an information form for parents to fill out on their incoming Kindergarteners which would give us valuable information in placing them in the right class. We could also use it for registration for our field trips.

Even though there is a cost for using the service, I think the campus as a whole would benefit from using this tool.
