Online research communities, from community panels to MROCs, have become a mainstream method of conducting research. However, one significant challenge remains to be conquered, how to conduct communities internationally, particularly multinational.
 
This 30 minute webinar will cover:

  • The challenges of multi-country, multi-national, multi-cultural, and multi-lingual research communities.
  • The limitations of the ‘English only’ method.
  • A tiered approach, respondents, reporting, and tech support.
  • The role of DIY in international research.
  • Devolved analysis and moderation.

 
Following the presentation will be Q & A.
