Abstract

 

Man by nature is inherently curious; seeking answers to questions, solutions to difficulties and constantly seeking ways to bridge the gap between the known and the unknown. Indeed, man does not believe in happenstance, after all, there should be answers to the various phenomenon encountered on daily basis. This has made man relentlessly engage in the quest and re-quest for knowledge. This expedition and its recurrence is known as research; seeking what has previously been sought. However, in this course of this pursuit, various methodologies have been adopted to make the journey worthwhile and systematic; notably among which is the survey method that emphasizes the use of standardized questionnaires or interviews to collect data about people, their preferences, thoughts, and behaviors in a systematic manner. The objective of this paper is not to only explore survey method but to also appraise the use of web or internet to engage in survey with the objective of making research easy. The paper reviews online or web survey as a recent questionnaire survey which is administered over the internet using several platforms and is targeted at collecting data from a large number of people who are germane to the research. Thus, the paper reviews the meaning, characteristics, uses, advantages and challenges faced with, in the course of adopting internet-based survey as a methodology to facilitate research and break the barrier between the researcher and the respondent.
