UTAS Survey Tool


The UTAS Survey tool is an open source product by Lime Survey available for use by UTAS staff.

Lime Survey allows users to quickly create intuitive, powerful, online question-and-answer surveys without any great technical knowledge or effort. The survey software itself is self-guiding for the respondents who are participating.
