Recently I defended my thesis for a master's degree in computer engineering, and internal reviewers marked it satisfactory, however, they made some comments in my report and presentation, one of them was to include the technical contribution of my research in the thesis report and presentation.
I found this comment very serious, and I couldn't get any idea on how to work around on those issues.
My research was related to some intervention on online learning (here I have used the techniques that are available through literature review) and it is based upon the use of popular psychological theory.
I used statistical methods to analyze the results. I have collected the data through a self-reported survey questionnaire. Results obtained were also somehow satisfactory(findings somehow deviated from the existing findings).
I also develop a tool to visualize the activity of the student interaction in that online learning, and which I consider as one of the contributions.
With all these things done, I am still confused about the problem of identifying my "technical contribution".
My Questions are:
What should I report as my technical contribution? How should I approach myself to identify my technical contribution? Actually, what is considered a technical contribution?
I know I need to consult my supervisor for this, but he will definitely ask the same question to me, and I will not have any answer for that.
Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance.
