MOTUS software platform
The software we use is called Modular Online Time Use Survey (MOTUS) and has been designed by scientists of the Research Group TOR of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel to conduct large scale time diary studies. As of 2019, the MOTUS software has been transferred to hbits, a Spin-Off of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, in order to increase its applicability for studies of daily life, such as this study on the impact of the corona crisis.
