    Hi all, I’d be really interested to hear what you think the best websites out there are for resources for teaching qualitative and quantitative research. I also thought that putting together a list of useful websites would be really handy for lecturers who use this site, and also for student members. So I’ll kick it off with a few of my favourites, but would be good to hear other peoples’ suggestions for good web resources they’ve come across!


    This website has a huge list of sites for qualitative research, but not all include teaching resources as such http://www.nova.edu/ssss/QR/web.html

    I direct people to this website quite a bit, though it’s a bit patchy http://onlineqda.hud.ac.uk/index.php

    And for quants, here are some I direct people to:

    http://faculty.chass.ncsu.edu/garson/PA765/statnote.htm – Quantitative (well-known and widely used in the States)

    http://www.math.uah.edu/stat/ – Probability and Statistics

    http://www.stat.sfu.ca/~cschwarz/MultipleChoice/ – Statistics multiple choice questions


    There’s so much stuff out there, would be nice to hear from people who have tried and tested things.


    Look forward to hearing your thoughts.





    Dear Katie,

    Amazing stuff you have provided here- I have not come accross such constructive compilation before: very useful links.Thanks so much

    If you liked that, take a look at this one! This is brilliant! Includes loads of material for lecturers and students. A new favourite!



    I am so lucky you responded; this is the type of resources I have been looking for all this time. Dynamite.

    Can I please ask you a question: how far are you with your research activities, Katie?


    Katie Metzler

    I am Commissioning Editor for Research Methods at SAGE and not actually a social science researcher myself! But I try to help out when I can on methodspace by providing links to SAGE content and other content that I think will be useful to researchers.

    For all you R users out there, this is a great website catalogue of a whole bunch of video tutorials on R… Really great resources here!!   http://jeromyanglim.blogspot.com/2010/05/videos-on-data-analysis-with-r.html 

    Hope it’s helpful!

    And this has videos of entire courses in maths and stats for free! Amazing stuff.

    Ok, I’ve found my new favourite website!!! Check out these Stats videos, provided by Khan Academy. All free to use however you like in your teaching or for your own education.



    I hope that folks will find my site to be useful.

    Free Resources for Program Evaluation and Social Research Methods


    I link to sites about how to do qualitative, quantitative, how to present research, sites about ethics, free stat software, and a whole lot more.

    Thanks for posting Gene! Your website looks great! Really useful!!


    For statistical purposes, I like http://www.statsoft.com/textbook/. A full statistics textbook explaining a diverse range of topics on a non-mathematical level.


    I regularly use the resources at statpages.org, especially the online pages for conducting statistical tests. Very handy of you have descriptive statistics an want to conduct hypothesis tests upon them.
