Focus Groups vs. Online Surveys in Adult Education

We recently lost an employee who used to craft our students' online surveys using as a tool to measure learning outcomes. As a result, and until we backfill the position, we are now only conducting Focus Group discussions. We use to do both; Focus Groups and online surveys.

Granted, our Focus Group will consist of just 10 students; small sample. However, the total population for this particular course is only fifty students.
