5 DISCUSSION OF RESEARCH FINDINGS In this chapter, the research findings are discussed and interpreted in conjunction with the literature review presented in chapter two linked to the purpose of the study. The chapter will therefore present the interpretation of responses as empirical data collected in line with the research questions and the hypotheses/ prepositions. In interpreting the findings, first, the data sets shall be verified through cross-referencing –that is, comparing and contrasting the answers to determine similarities, dissimilarities and deviations from the study sample. Second, as indicated in Section 3.3.1 and Section 3.4, accuracy of the semi-structured interview schedule will be validated by comparing the results of the pilot study with the actual responses to determine appropriateness for generalisation, whilst statistical testing shall be conducted on fully structured interview schedule (also called a questionnaire) thus confirming the validity and reliability of the questionnaire as a data collection instrument. The aim is to ascertain if the findings generated through the data collection instruments fairly represent the accuracy in addressing the objectives of the study through the research questions. 5.1 Research question/hypothesis/proposition 1 5.2 Research question/hypothesis/proposition 2 36

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
