sorry to hear your initial research did not work out - often a pilot is like that and the same thing happened to me. It will still be excellent data for your final writeup. The research strategies I eventually ended up using for my main study were quite different to those in the pilot. I am looking forward to reading your thoughts around flexible learning on your blog.

thanks for your reply bron. it wasn't my pilot that didn't work-it was my main study. any changes i come up with will go into my discussion/recommendations chapter. but have just had good news - my scholarship has been extended for another 6 months so i'm going to be financially viable again!
