At yesterday’s Bond group for MEL, a few people were recommending Kobo Toolbox for data collection, or Salesforce for M&E (something which lots of NGOs seem to be doing and which continually amazes me – it’s a CRM!!)
When a couple other people suggested alternative tools, I remembered a list we collated as part of the World Bank evaluation work I led in 2015. Well I think the list (an appendix to the Guide) is still useful. And probably more useful on a web page than in an appendix of a 100-page PDF, so here it is in all it’s glory.
So far it only has one addition (Riwi, who we’d accidentally got left out of the original, sorry guys!), but if you see other tools that you like and aren’t here (or you see tools that are in this list but no longer available or supported), let me know and I’ll do my best to keep it up to date.
There’s no info on each tool I’m afraid (space was at a premium), but they all have web links so I hope it’s still helpful!
