Program Details:

Everyone who spends any time on the Internet has been prompted to complete an online survey. That's an online tool most researchers are familiar with. But what other types of research can you do using the vast reach of the Internet?

This session will discuss the online methodology as a highly effective and economic means of collecting user feedback. We'll explore the advantages of doing an online study and discuss what types of research projects are well suited for this methodology.

We'll review case studies of projects using this methodology in order to gain an understanding of what steps are involved from the researcher's standpoint, what participants experience when they take part in an online study, and what type of learnings can be collected using this methodology. Some of the projects we'll examine include an online usability testing of a web site, rapid prototype testing using an online panel, and online testing of ads & marketing messages, and other real- world applications of the online methodology.
