  1. 1. for an Erasmus+ Project The tool was developed using C# programming language within the ASP.NET framework. Survey questions and user responses were stored in a MS SQL Database and it is hosted on a shared web server. The tool has three main parts: surveys, reports, and an admin panel. Surveys include, but are not limited to, Pre and Post Transnational Project Meeting events, Project Diaries of project partners, and Student Exchange events (see Fig 1). It was also used for collecting data about special cases such as the project logo competition (see Fig 2). Online versions of the surveys were created and uploaded to the system by the software developer. Every individual with a link could respond the survey. Authentication was required in order to access the admin area and survey reports. Surveys contained the following question types: (a) Rating scale, (b) Yes/No, (c) Short text, (d) Long text, (e) and File upload. Data Collecting Tool Erasmus+ is the European Union (EU) Programme for education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. The projects which include the cooperation and mobility with partners all over the Europe are supported by Erasmus+. Searching for the Labours of Hercules (2014-1-TR01-KA201- 012990) is one of the projects which is funded. Searching for the Labours of Hercules Project “Searching for the Labours of Hercules” gets its name from the mythological story “Twelve Labours of Hercules”. According to myth Hercules travels throughout Europe to complete the Twelve Labours. His journey represents the common heritage of European countries and project aims to promote common heritage amongst cultural diversity. While project includes student and teacher mobilities for this aim, it also focuses on the integration of information and communication technologies (ICT) into teaching and learning processes. For this purpose, various opportunities for improving and facilitating the use of technology in instructional processes are provided to teachers and students. A total of 8 institutions, including 2 universities, 5 high schools, and 1 non-governmental organization from 6 different countries collaborated in order to enrich this process with academic and socio-cultural differences. In this 3-year project, it is planned to produce 6 intellectual outputs, which one of them is Data Collecting Tool. Data Collecting Tool To be successful, it is not enough to plan a project well but manage it effectively. The important thing is managing the project regarding scope, time, cost as it is planned. Progress needs to be controlled, the barriers in front of the progression need to be solved and / or take precaution. If any changes made, also they need to reflect to plan and follow. All these needs made us to develop a tool to manage the project properly. We collect data about partners budget, and their expenses, their tasks and timing over monthly reports, collect data from project participants, which also is an indicator whether we reached our aims. It help us to control scope-time-cost of the project. The aim of this study to introduce Data Collecting Tool. Fig. 1 This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.

Erasmus+ Fig. 2 Fig. 3 Each survey was accompanied by a report screen (see Fig 3) in which the administrators could see aggregated results and their graphical representations. If the survey was particular to the project partners (project diaries etc.), the admin was also able to see who did and did not respond and send non-responders an email reminder. The last component of the system was the admin panel (See Fig 4) in which the admins were able to monitor the status of the past and ongoing surveys. Information on the surveys provided are the creation and due dates of the survey, the survey link, the survey report link, and the link for the PDF download of the survey report.
