Numerous qualitative methodologies have been used more and more in online contexts however richer methods are needed to document and explain the social norms and communicative acts in the interactions of participants in these kinds of environments. The goal of this paper is to provide examples of critical qualitative analysis in an online learning context. The aim is to share some of the lived reality of employing methods appropriate for analyzing online interactions. In this particular study, explanations, examples, and appropriate citations are provided to detail how online group interactions are analyzed using critical qualitative research approach. Rich description of the inquiry practices is provided in order to help readers evaluate whether or to what extent the method used to analyze the data is applicable to their contexts. Not only experienced researchers but also young scholars who are new to qualitative research methods may benefit from the study.
