“Nettskjema” with dictaphone and photo solutions

“Nettskjema” has two unique apps that can be downloaded to your smartphone or tablet; “Nettskjema” -Dictaphone for sound recording and “Nettskjema” -photo for photography. The apps can be downloaded from Google Play and the App Store. The Dictaphone app forwards the audio files to the “Nettskjema” you have created for your interview (s) or photo recordings. This replaces the tape recorder and dictaphone or camera. Collecting and storing interviews with personal information and photos with people for research purposes on your own smartphone without the app is not allowed. The difference is that the respective apps ensure that the audio recording or image is encrypted on your smartphone and it is not possible to play the audio recording or view the image directly from the phone, you must log in to the “Nettskjema” results section or TSD (for sensitive data) to do it.

Personally sensitive data or data that needs special protection

If you are going to use “Nettskjema” in a project with collection of personal information and / or sensitive data, you must first investigate whether the project is notifiable. The main rule is that if you are to process personal data in the survey, it must be reported to the privacy ombudsman for research.

If your data capture contains data with a special need for protection, for example personal sensitive data reported to the Regional Ethics Committee (REK) or the NSD Privacy Ombudsman, the project must be placed in the research portal TSD (Service for sensitive data). “Nettskjema” can still be used, but must be set up by technical support at UiO.


If you have questions related to the use of “Nettskjema”, local user support at HINN can be contacted: IT Department Learning and Research Technology Ian McKelvey (Lillehammer) and Erik Lysbakken (Elverum).
