  • GLOBAL DIGITAL ACTIVISM DATA SET 2.0CODERTRAININGMay18, 2013
  • WHO IS DOINGTHIS RESEARCH?The Digital Activism Research Project | www.digital-activism.org
  • OUR RESEARCH QUESTION•What are the key features of digital activismcampaigns around the world?•How do these features correlate with variousmeasures of success?
  • OUR METHOD•Use content analysis•...to ask questions about a large number of digitalactivism campaigns•...and end up with quantitative and comparableanswers.
  • YOUR ROLE• Analyze digital activism campaigns• ...and turn that information into comparable data.sources: GlobalVoices, Greenpeace, Fahamu
  • HOW?• 1. Read descriptions of digital activism campaigns.
  • HOW?• 2.Answer questions about those campaigns using the variablesin the codebook.
  • HOW?• 3. Submit yourvariable values foreach campaignusing the onlinecoder form.
  • HOW?• Read descriptions of digital activism campaigns.• Answer questions about those campaigns using the variablesin the codebook.• Submit your variable values for each campaign using the onlinecoder form.Any questions on the basic process?
  • WHYTHISTRAINING?• 1.To establish reliability (agreement) among coders.Argentina!Argentina!Argentina!Argentina!Brazil!99?X ✓
  • WHYTHISTRAINING?• 2.To identify any unclear or ambiguous instructions in thecodebook and fix them.I don’t understandthese instructions.X ✓This is soclear now!PS:We will not change the variables themselves. We will only change the instructions to make the meaning of those variables clearer.
  • DIGITAL ACTIVISMCAMPAIGNS• There are many kinds of digital activism.• The kind of digital activism we are studying here is the digitalpersuasion campaign.• The variables in the codebook measure the key elements of adigital persuasion campaign.
