We have developed a set of online resources to support postgraduate students who are preparing research proposals or who are undertaking doctoral research. The project consists of a website with nearly 200 short videos. The videos show interviews with academics and research students, as well as supervisory sessions. Topics include types of research, research methods, thesis writing, managing research studies, and the perspectives of an external examiner. The videos feature academics and students from EdUHK and from other tertiary institutions. This online database is designed to facilitate innovative distance and blended learning pedagogies.

The videos can be viewed on a PC, tablet or mobile phone. The website is best viewed using Internet Explorer version 11, Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
