Making online surveys with Google Forms

I have been a great fan of SurveyMonkey for making online surveys, but the big disadvantage has been that the free version does not allow you to download and share your results.

I have known about Google Forms, which is part of Google Documents for some time but have never investigated further (to my detriment). Suffice to say, it is a great tool for developing online surveys and it downloads data directly into a database. This tool is free and very user-friendly. Here are some instructions about how to use it. I highly recommend this compared to the free version of SurveyMonkey.
