Simply Powerful Tools for Qualitative Research

From Pepperdine University: HyperResearch Creates HyperHappy Doctoral Students

We love to hear from customers who tell us how HyperRESEARCH has helped them do their research.

I was especially delighted when I discovered this video from Pepperdine University's Graduate School of Education and Psychology. It's a presentation organized by Dr. Kay Davis, titled "HyperResearch Creates HyperHappy Doctoral Students." 

The Education Division of the GSEP provides licensed copies of HyperRESEARCH to doctoral students engaging in qualitative research. This video presentation serves as an introduction to the software, discusses why Pepperdine University chose HyperRESEARCH, how they use it, and explores student feedback on the software. 

This presentation was originally offered to Pepperdine University students and faculty in the Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) in February, 2014. The video replay is available on Pepperdine's "Community" website, and also on YouTube.  

Here's the full video (1 hour - see below for links to key points within the video):




Of course, policies and practices for dissertation research vary among universities and instutitions. So not all of this information will be pertinent to every doctoral student or graduate program!


Here are some links to specific portions of Pepperdine University's video for those interested (will open in a new window and autoplay beginning at the appropriate start time):


Why do we need qualitative analysis software? (timecode 8:28-9:45) " provides us with a faster and more efficient way to code our data...much more flexibility... ability to search and query... easy access to multiple users"
