Dear Socnet Members,
I'm currently running a module on Research Methods and in the second
part of the course I would like my students to collect some data, more
specifically (electronic) network data. Have any of you run some
exercises in class that worked well and you're willing to share the
experience? Are you aware of literature on the topic? The course I'm
referring to is an undergrad course (in Communication Management), so
the exercise shouldn't be too sophisticated in terms of technical
skills. One thing that I'm tempted to try is to let students export
their Facebook data via Namegenweb
(https://apps.facebook.com/namegenweb/) or a similar application and let
them play around with and graph the data in Gephi (http://gephi.org/).
However, I would love to collect a few more ideas and thought that some
of you may be able to offer good advise.
