This presentation will address:

  • questions from the basic introduction of NVivo
  • the basics of NVivo 10 / 11 (its interface, ingesting multimedia files, and coding data) (a review from NVivo Basic)
  • how to set up qualitative data to be explored and queried
  • how to query the collected data in an NVivo project (word frequency counts, text searches, matrix coding queries, matrix queries, proximity text searches, and other forms of text parsing)
  • how to create data visualizations (word trees, word clouds, dendrograms, ring lattice graphs, and others) (for analysis and presentations)
  • how to conduct four types of auto-coding (by extracted themes and subthemes, by sentiment analysis, by structured data, and by machine learning based on existing human coding)
  • how to create fresh data visualizations, and
  • how to output a basic report.

The presenter will be using the Windows version of the software. Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops. The room will be open at 1 p.m. All are welcome, no RSVP is required.
