Afendi Hamat, Mohamed Amin Embi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter presents a look at a qualitative methodology employed to solve a research problem concerning the design of course management systems. The discussion starts with a look at the problem that defines the methodology used. It then discusses qualitative research methodology in relations to the research question and the investigation by the researchers. The chapter presents the methodology based around the four qualitative concepts of credibility, transferability, dependability and conformability. For each of the concept, the chapter also discusses issues that arise during the investigation; and how these issues were solved and presented.
