REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, web-based application for building and managing online surveys and databases. REDCap's easy design environment allows a user to quickly create data capture forms with features like a built-in audit log and configurable user rights. REDCap was developed by Vanderbilt University, which continues to oversee its ongoing development and the implementation of new features, through the REDCap Consortium.

REDCap is a self-service application.  Below are some informational REDCap videos that can help you get started and gain a better understanding of the REDCap application and its functionality. NOTE: New versions of REDCap are released frequently, so the videos and other training resources below may reflect earlier software versions and thus may look slightly different than your system. Refer to your REDCap software’s built-in prompts and instructional text for the most current information.
