Last week we spent whole class section to discuss the research approach. That was very impressive and useful. Even I were not an IT student, I also need to do my degree project toward my major in coming simmer. It gave me clear guidance how to apply research approach to do my project, it also very a useful tool. It is my purpose to do this course, now it seems achieving and I was progressing Ha-ha!! I was so grateful.
In the class, the tutor classifies several types of research approach which are:
