This section provides tutorials and mini examples to guide you through the concepts of Sapelli in a step-by-step basis.

Sapelli is a suite of tools that consists of Sapelli Designer (used to design projects), Sapelli Collector (to collect data) and Sapelli Viewer (to analyse and visualise data). Please use the Sapelli Training Materials to guide you through the process of creating a Sapelli project using all of the Sapelli apps.

Prior to the development of Sapelli Designer, all Sapelli projects had to be created by writing XML code. The tutorials below cover this method. The tutorial is divided into five sections:

  1. How to use Sapelli
    The first section will guide you through downloading and installing the Sapelli app onto your device, loading a project onto the app and collecting data.
  2. How to make a Sapelli project
    This section describes everything that is needed to make a Sapelli project as well as a gentle introduction to XML (XML is the main file needed to make a Sapelli project).
  3. Adding advanced features
    This section helps you add more advanced functionality to your project using the jump and special jump attributes. In addition this section will demonstrate how you can add features which allow the user to provide written or numerical responses (similar to a traditional form or survery) as well as including HTML pages in your project. Finally, for more experienced project designers this section will explore advanced Form components.
  4. Getting the collected data
    This section describes all possible methods of getting the collected data: Exporting the data to your own phone, sending the data to another phone and sending the data to a web server.
  5. Exploring the data
    This section illustrates what the collected data will look like – providing examples for both XML and CSV output.
