Learn to use NVivo for qualitative research analysis. Learn how to collect, organize, and analyze nonnumerical research data, including text and images.
- [Instructor] Hi and welcome to this course on NVivo. I'm David Rivers. NVivo is qualitative data analysis software. It can be a powerful research tool for qualitative researchers who are interested in evaluating, interpreting and explaining social experiences. Qualitative data, that is, non-numerical data can be more challenging to gather, organize and analyze. And that's where NVivo can help. This course is for those who are new to NVivo. And we'll cover the very basics of using this powerful software to help you get started.
We'll begin with a review of the ways to approach a research project before launching NVivo to take a tour of the user interface. Then we'll delve into ways to use NVivo to gather and organize data. Including importing various types of content and using nodes and coding to organize that data. Then it's on the analyzing data where we'll learn about using text queries. And a couple of charting tools to help you visualize parts of your project in NVivo.
So what do you need to follow along with me in this course. We'll cover that next.
