The Center for Research Informatics

The Center for Research Informatics at the University of Chicago has a fantasticly thorough site helping one getting into REDCap. I highly recommend visiting their top-notch site. I believe this is probably the most thorough collection of REDCap manuals, tutorials, and FAQs that is available. You’ll find manuals (20 of them) that are specific to many common REDCap tasks. They also have several FAQs, ways that HTML code can be used, among many other things.

Slow Loading of REDCap at USU

Recently, we moved the servers that REDCap ran on to a new building and in the process the IP addresses changed. Because of this, your browser may be going very slowly when you try to pull up For now, our best answer is to clear your DNS cache. This is different than clearing your browser history. Below, I highlight how you can do this for each system (assuming your computer is fairly up-to-date).

In addition to what is explained below, it may be good to clear the browsing history of your browser.

Mac Users

Quit all browser applications. Open the terminal app (in the Spotlight Search, search for “Terminal” and it should pull up there). Type the following command and then press enter.

sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

It will ask for the computer’s password at this point. Enter the password and then press enter. If it ran correctly, it shouldn’t say anything else.

Windows Users

Close all browser programs. Press the Windows Key or hover your mouse over the bottom left corner and click the Windows Icon. Begin typing “Command Prompt”. It should pull up for you. Right-click the application and select Run as Administrator. Once you are in the app, run the following command in the command line and hit enter:

ipconfig /flushdns

Linux Users

Open the terminal window and type the following command and then press enter:

sudo /etc/init.d/nscd restart


These should provide a temporary help. If it slows again, you can try doing this again. We are working on a more permanent fix for this.
