At Nesta we believe randomised control trials (RCTs) could and should be used much more to test whether something actually works. As part of this, we supported RandomiseMe.org, a free online trials generator that allows anyone to set up and run their own randomised control trials.
Randomise Me allows you to set up trials to test something on yourself, or to set up a group trial where others can join. There is also the functionality to allow you to run a trial off-line. in each case the site helps structure the trial and analyse the data.
But what are trials and why are they useful? Watch this animation and find out!
