NVivo offers a platform to organize, analyze and parse through large amounts of qualitative data of all kinds—from interview recordings and field notes to video and images.
This workshop is targeted to new users of NVivo. I will cover the basics of how to get started with the software. This session will be especially useful to those who already have some data ready to import into NVivo and want to learn how to set up codes and begin coding their data.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own computers with NVivo 10 installed (free copies are available to SBS faculty, staff, and students – go here to register), but ISSR laptops will also be available for use, by reservation. Note: NVivo currently only runs on Windows, but can run on Macintosh computers that are able to run Windows.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
• Navigate the NVivo workspace;
• Create a new project in NVivo;
• Import documents;
• Create nodes;
• Code data to those nodes and;
• Create links, memos, and annotations.
