Another questionnaire from a participating student was received today. A preliminary analysis of the responses revealed a very interesting feature that the student would like to see in a system that supports the task of conducting a trial: “[a] central portal for collaboration with colleagues.” -which is precisely the underlying philosophy of VRIC. I am certain that responses from other students will show equally interesting notions.
The first version of the structure of a student trial is now complete. Changes to how the contents are organised will now be adjusted following feedback from the group of students who will work as co-designers.
First phase of research work with the students has been initialised. In this stage, they were sent a questionnaire to gather their views and experiences on conducting trials and studying in a distance learning modality. I have received responses from one student and have started the analysis of the data following a grounded theory approach. Findings from the analysis of students’ questionnaires will provide a picture of the type of tools they use and the mechansism followed in the conduction and documentation of a trial.
