Qualtrics usage and licence terms

If you want to use Qualtrics in your class for running surveys, ITS can set up a Division group, with an overall Administrator appointed. The Administrator will be able to create new users, as well as search for, view and edit individual user accounts within your Division. The Administrator is also able to create sets of access permissions for Qualtrics users and groups of users.

There is no charge for using Qualtrics.
Requesting Qualtrics access
Please contact AskOtago to request that a Qualtrics account be set up.
If you are a teaching or academic staff member and require your students to run a survey, you will need to designate a staff member to act as Division Administrator for your department (or Qualtrics "Division"). Please email ITS Software Procurement at email@example.com to request that the staff member be set up as Administrator for your Division. The designated staff member will receive an email which contains all the information required with a link to online tutorials to help with the administration of your department's Qualtrics account.
