How Can I Use V-Note as a Researcher?
V-Note is a flexible tool. There are as many uses as there are people using it. We are used in over 100 universities, by individuals and small groups, and in large companies – from teacher reflections to consumer research. Just a few common uses include:
- Mark, compare, and categorize instances from your videos to propose and evaluate models for human behavior – whether solo or with collaborators.
- Get some productive argumentation going between your students (or colleagues) about where – in a given video - a certain concept is witnessed (e.g., inquiry, wait time, good questioning, excellent teaching, etc.). You’ll be amazed at how different people see the same video. This is a great space for innovative research whether with students or colleagues!
- Consumer research; potential users are analyzed while interacting with new products.
- Student teachers, for example, record themselves, use V-Note to add some codes and link them to rubrics. They then share with supervisors or others for more input. (Save time).
- Build portfolios to show change or consistency over time (e.g., surgical incisions, questioning techniques, legal techniques, analogical situations, etc.)
V-Note is also used in law enforcement and legal fields, animal research, and much more. Wherever humans need to make sense of video, we’re there.
