Research methodology + −
With the research methodology our ambition was to conduct a study looking into the effect of digital communications on our mental wellbeing. The methodology was made up of two phases:
Phase 1: Community
To start the process we created an open online community and using various networks we were able to grow this to over 125 members. Over the course of the 3 weeks we ran the community, where our members were able to participate by answering questions and performing quick-fire tasks. Using the insights uncovered through our members responses, we then developed forum topics which elicited more reflective long-form responses.
Most participants took part in all aspects of the study, with many exchanging ideas and thoughts with each other.
Phase 2: Deep Dive
Those who were willing to collaborate further were invited to take part in a 45-minute Skype call to explore certain topics in more detail.
