Discussions are created and run by a moderator. A discussion can have multiple topics within it. Each of these topics will relate to the overall subject covered by the discussion. You will be able to choose who may participate in the discussion, whether they can see other participant’s comments and when they can see each topic within the discussion.

Homework Tasks
Sometimes there is nothing better than getting people together for a real focus group. Often, people are expected to do some pre-group "homework". Common homework tasks include taking photos, providing some initial thoughts about a product, or simply introducing yourself to the moderator. This can be accomplished online using our special "mini-discussions" that we call "Homework Tasks". For larger Homework Tasks (of more than 4 topics) this can be done for an additional charge of $150 + Tax

Live Chat
While a standard discussion generally happens over one or more days, and participants come and go as they please over a period of time, a Live Chat is a conversation that happens at a particular time, for no more than a couple of hours. All participants are expected to join in at a particular time and remain for the duration of the conversation.

Ideation Projects
Ideation is the creative process of generating, developing, and communicating new ideas, where an idea is understood as a basic element of thought that can be either visual, concrete, or abstract. Ideation comprises all stages of a thought cycle, from innovation, to development, to actualization. As such, it is an essential part of the design process, both in education and practice

SMS Packages
Packages of SMS credits are allocated to your account and used one by one as you send SMS messages to your participants. SMS credits can be used for any of your Projects

Machine Transcription Packages
The Video Blog topic type allows you to optionally generate a text transcription of what was said in the video. Important parts of the video text can be highlighted, and each highlight video can be merged together into a Highlight Reel. We use machine-based deep neural network speech recognition, and charge per 10 seconds of video. The more transcription credits you purchase at one time, the cheaper the effective cost per minute.
