I would like to invite you to participate in a study investigating the use of multi-media formats for designing and delivering online courses.
The study will involve watching a presentation and answering four short questionnaires about what you read, watched and listened to. You will also be asked for some general demographic information and have an opportunity to provide your feedback on the study at the end.
This study is being conducted by myself, Jill Clark, and will form the basis of my dissertation submission for the MSc in Digital Education from the University of Edinburgh. The project has been approved by Moray House School of Education Ethics Committee.
The presentations begin with a consent form; if you decide you do not wish to proceed, simply close your browser tab. If you decide to proceed, the first step will be to answer a few questions about yourself. Each questionnaire will appear along the timeline of the presentation at the bottom of the video frame. Simply click ‘Complete following questions,..’ to access the questions.
All survey responses will be anonymous, unless you choose to include any personal information in your responses. Participation in this study is voluntary and you may withdraw at any time. You may also choose not to complete all the survey questions but I would encourage you to complete as many as you can; the more feedback about the presentation formats, the more useful the study will be in helping to inform future design and delivery of online courses. Whether you choose to participate in the study or decide not to, there are no known risks to any participants.
To participate in the study, please choose one of the ONE of the following links:
Note: The presentations are best viewed on PC/laptop or tablet.
The closing date for completing the survey is Sunday 22 October 2017.
If you have any questions or concerns about this study, please do not hesitate to contact me.
