Online discussions can be a rich source of data for researchers in the humanities and social sciences. In this workshop, participants will learn how to use Google Sheets to push online discussion board data into Google Analytics, where it can be analysed. The session will also demonstrate how to use TAGS, the widely-used script for archiving Twitter data. Participants can bring their own laptops if they wish; there will also be desktop PCs for use. Please note: if you’re not staff or student at the University of Edinburgh, you will need to obtain a temporary login from the registration desk in advance.
