Methods and Data Collection
The Startin’Blox software is vital in creating web components in a straightforward way and hence can be effective in allowing cooperatives to design effective apps that can be used by members in the long run to acres engagement and promote communication. As such, there was a need to use a research methodology that factors in opinions from participants and the various views of different entities regarding the effectiveness of Startin’Blox. This paper applied a qualitative approach, specifically applying descriptive analysis of secondary data. Qualitative research will enable a focus on gaining as much information as possible from the sample size chosen. The approach is chosen because of its flexibility and how it enables participants to express their views while providing data.
