NVivo 1 for Windows: Getting Started

NVivo 1 for Windows: Getting Started

When undertaking qualitative research, it doesn’t take long for things to get messy. You can quickly find yourself buried under interview transcripts, photographs, videos, memos, web sites, articles and other texts. NVivo is a powerful data collection and analysis tool for the qualitative researcher. In this 90-minute workshop for beginners, we’ll look at strategies for getting your data into the system, setting up preferences for how you want to work, organizational principles, and other tips and tricks.

Workshop Topics

  • Getting to know the NVivo workspace
  • Exploring different types of data types/files that can be analyzed
  • Basic coding of text-based files
  • Using Queries to explore and code your data
  • Recording comments and ideas

Prerequisites: Basic understanding of qualitative research methods is suggested, but not required. Watching this short tutorial on coding qualitative data before attending the workshop is recommended.

NOTE:

  • This is the first workshop in a two-part series - NVivo 2 is the second.
  • This workshop is for the *WINDOWS* version of NVivo (NOT for Mac version).
