Qualitative and quantitative methods are often used for understanding interactions in asynchronous learning spaces. Traditionally researchers in these fields have not collaborated. Research on asynchronous discussions provides an ideal arena for collaboration because of the large volume of data available and the relatively under-theorised nature of the field. The presenters are examining communication and decision making in computer mediated teamwork. They seek to bridge the qualitative/quantitative divide by using both approaches to better understand what is happening.
