Abstract

Based on a post-graduate online course recently taught at a major American public university, this paper explores the ethical issues associated with analysis of computer conference transcripts. It discusses how lack or negative responses of potential participants can limit the analysis of conference transcripts. The paper also discusses the importance of triangulating the interpretations of the transcripts with other data sources used in the study. This is followed by a general discussion of the difficulties encountered throughout the study and raises issues to advance understanding in this new area of inquiry. Based on the results of this study, the paper recommends a series of strategies for future research
