NVivo is designed to help you manage and analyse qualitative data. It allows you to keep your data files organised and to easily code text, sound and video files. NVivo can also help you create models to illustrate your findings.
This training workshop is conducted using NVivo 12 Pro on Windows computers.
There is no cost for ANU Higher Degree Research (HDR) students, postgraduate students and ANU staff.
This session will introduce the NVivo workspace and terminology, including how to set up a project in the most efficient way. It will also cover how to import data; create nodes; and code textual, audio and visual data. NVivo’s transcription tool will also be demonstrated.
This session introduces the extra features in NVivo that aid in the coding process. It will cover how to use:
autocoding to create cases and question nodes
word frequency queries to help you create a coding scheme
text search queries to help to initially code a large amount of data
coding comparison queries to conduct a coding reliability check.
This session will take you through the process of analysing data in depth, once coding is complete. It will also look at tools which are helpful for project management, literature reviews and collaboration. It will cover how to use:
coding and matrix coding queries to look at the overlap or otherwise in themes
crosstabs queries to analyse differences between groups (attributes) in the project
cluster analysis to find clues as to which themes/cases are related
maps, diagrams and comparison diagrams to help describe the project visually
other features to help manage projects and collaborate with others (such as exporting information, memos and “set” meta-folders)
using NVivo for literature reviews with external files and memos.
