Student Veterans' Shared Experience Using Social Media in Higher Education: A Pilot Study with a Hybrid Phenomenological Data Analysis Method
Marsilio, Kenneth
Information Systems Education Journal, v15 n5 p45-59 Sep 2017
This study emphasized understanding how student veterans experience and what they do with social media. Student veterans typically have a much different college experience than nonmilitary students. A qualitative method was used to perform this research. The researcher adapted Colaizzi's and Moustakas's phenomenological methods to create a data analysis approach that fulfilled the needs of this study. Student veterans were interviewed with questions developed to attain their shared experiences. The research established that student veterans are using social media as a tool to communicate, build relationships, and seek assistance. They are having helpful experiences with social media to achieve their educational success.
