Abstract

21st century telecommunications have spawned new developments in anthropological research.Researchers now utilise online tools and investigate virtual social phenomena. A research projectat the University of Tasmania required the development of a tailored methodology to investigatereal-world activities across multiple education institutions and associated on-line communities.The study employed a blend of traditional and contemporary approaches assembled fromestablished methodologies. Considerations influencing the development of the methodology arepresented with the intention of informing future researchers of valid methodological design.Ontological and epistemological concerns are addressed to establish a framework for 21st centuryethnographical methodologies.
