Skype Interview Introduction

Skype Chat is a cost effective interview method largely used in qualitative research.

In any cases of interviews to be carried out among participants and researchers that are distantly located, or scattered, it is time-consuming and inconvenient to carry out face-to-face interviews. As a sound alternative method, Skype chat may be used in these circumstances. Even cross-border interviews can be performed with the assistance of interpreter joining online Skype conference, which saves research effort much more than ever in terms of time and travelling cost of project team.
