The site guides a student through an introduction to conceptual frameworks, help in forming a research question, the process, steps and examples of creating and refining an appropriate conceptual research framework for a study. The text and related resources provide an overview, but the site is brought to life by the videoclips of a student describing, in detail, her struggles and success at creating a conceptual framework for her education thesis.

Although all the islands are important, “The Steps” island shows you the different drafts the student has gone through to arrive at her final conceptual framework. These major topics are what determine the research questions and the major topics in the chapter 2 literature review. One of the great values of this program is that it emphasizes the constantly evolving process of determining your research questions. My students feel they are married to their first questions and this program stresses that those first questions need to developed based on reading and research.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to use!

This is a great resource for someone who is trying to understand both the purpose for a conceptual framework and the process of creating one. The videos that accompany the learning object are helpful because students generally like to hear about someone who has been where they are and struggled right along with them. This is an interesting and well-done learning object that could fit into another, longer online course.
