Open Data Kit (ODK) for mobile linguistic metadata entry

  • 1. Leiden University


This presentation-demonstration introduces a new method for entering linguistic metadata into mobile devices using the Open Data Kit (ODK) platform, a suite of open source tools designed for mobile data collection. This ODK method is the first linguistic metadata creation system that allows for independent teams of researchers to collect data simultaneously in remote areas and store the compiled results on the cloud. The method was developed as part of two community-based language documentation projects in Tanzania involving, twelve researchers collecting data in four administrative regions (Griscom & Harvey 2019).
