Qualitative

Quantitantive

The aim is to classify features also count the features and to construct statistical models in an atempt to explain what is observed. Another difference is in Quantitantive the researcher knows what they are looking for. The Researcher uses tools such as questionaires and graphs to help with gathering information and counting numbers. The data is in the form of numbers and statistics wheather in Qualitative Its Just words, pictures and objects.

Websites I Like

Bebo

The first website i enjoy would have to be bebo. Bebo is frequently changing and is a great way to stay in contact with all your friends online. It is really easy to use and log in. The homepage is designed so you can see what your friends have currently been doing with their page eg. adding pictures and adding new friends and commenting peoples pictures. Also A good thing about Bebos homepage is it lets you moderate and check your comments and tells you if you have any friend requests. Here is A link to bebo.

Under the radar is a quick and easy to use website with the main links to buying tickets and news links on the very top of the page big and bold. This website allows you to buy tickets cheaper then what you can normally get them, also when clicking on the tickets links it will bring up all the concerts and gigs around new zealand where they are and how much they cost. A great way to get tickets nice and easy.

Websites I Dont Like

WordPress

This is one website i havn’t yet quite got the hang off adding people and adding pictures and things to your homepage is slow and always a hassle. You should be able to add contacts from msn, gmail or yahoo. Not have to find individual people in person to blog with. Thats just lame. If you enjoy wordpress all i can say is good luck with that. Here’s a link.

Myspace

This is one social website that i do not like at all. It takes a lot of effort to make a good myspace layout page. If you didnt know how to use coding you would have no idea how to work this social side of the web. Its not good for people who dont know to much about computors comapared to bebo when you dont need to know how to code.  Another thing i dont like about myspace is the set up of your page.

Today we had a lecture From Collin Phillips who is a successful  web designer.  He taught us about the history of the internet and how far it has come since early years.  I learnt that Pc’s are better then macs because there are a lot more people using Pc’s then there are macs around the world which means there will be  a lot more opportunity for web designers and computor it to get work using Pc’s. Collin phillips worked and designed the first Ford motor company then worked for Synergy for a period of time. Then he brought out the company basetwo and employed web designers to create a very successful buisness. Link to his website http://www.basetwo.co.nz
