I found it easy to use for capturing and housing articles, books, and other websites, and I found the interface to be intuitive. I have not tried the Word plug-in yet, but I have created bibliographic […]

Reflection on Zotero

I have been using Zotero as my database manager for the class and overall, I’m extremely happy to have it. I truly love what it forces me to do in creating an abstract and then (at Shelly’s request) create notes about the reading. I’m so grateful to have a place to dump/organize readings and my […]

Reflection: How/why did you like or not like using the Research Resource Database?

Reflection on Digital Methods Reports

I ended up looking at Theresia’s investigation of NVivo alternatives, Jenny’s research of online focus groups, and Laura’s overview of netnography. I tried to find one that I was genuinely interested in for more immediate considerations on my research topic, but also ones that seemed less relevant to kind of force myself to learn/think about […]

Alternate Method Reflections

Just like all the other information, both theoretical and practical, that we have shared and discussed in this class, this particular project introduced me to topics about which I knew nothing.  In some cases, I had heard the term or had a basic understanding of what the concept was, but, with many methods, this was […]

Reflection: Digital Method Reports

What/why/how will you use information you learned from the various Digital Method Research Reports? Well, I learned about ManicTime, Scalar, Crowdsourcing and NVivo in addition to the others that I read but didn’t respond to. First, I find it very useful to have all of these options at my finger tips as a resource in the future. So thanks […]

Reflections: On Digital Methods Reports

First of all, I have to tip my hat off to each and every digital methods report shared here. Each report is very detailed and thought-provoking even though all reports vary from one interest to another. Technically speaking, I am also grateful that each one of my classmates took the time to link useful sources […]
