Are online sessions with a research consultant as effective as traditional face-to-face sessions?
Students of all ages say that they are.
With an online telephoning service, your thesis or dissertation assistant and you can chat real time using text, voice, video and or desktop sharing (ie where one of you allows the other to see his / her screen during the session). Essentially, your interaction can have all of the elements of traditional face-to-face meetings ... but without commuting and other scheduling challenges.
The image shown here is a screenshot of drawings made by a tutor during a real-time session that used video and screen sharing features of a free online telephone system (like Skype). The snapshots were sent to the research student afterwards.
None of these technologies require special technical skill on your part.
What is the simplest way of having online sessions about your research?
Free online 'telephoning' systems like Skype, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger or Google Hangout offer technologies that are simplest (and most effective).
For instance, with Skype, your research tutor, coach or consultant can chat with you real-time using text, file sharing, voice, video and or desktop sharing (ie where one of you allows the other to see his / her screen during the session). Essentially, your research sessions can have all of the elements of traditional face-to-face meetings ... but without commuting and other scheduling challenges.
We help research students to set up any of these systems. Thesis or dissertation students who are unfamiliar with making online calls are advised to set up the free software provided by the company for which they already have a pre-existing (email) account. See the options that we use.
Is it necessary for meetings about your research project to occur via online telephone services?
No. Depending on the nature of your request, you may use email. For instance, reviews of and expert feedback on your research proposal or final research paper usually occur by email.
