NVivo 10 and 11 Advanced training scheduled March 25

“NVivo 10 and 11 Advanced” is a follow-up presentation from the “Introduction to NVivo 10 and 11” offered the prior month. This training will be held 1:30-3:30 p.m. Friday, March 25, in 401B Hale Library.  

NVivo 11 Plus New Project Screen

This presentation will address the following:

  • any extant questions from the basic introduction of NVivo,
  • the basics of NVivo 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 for this interactive session. The room will be open for this event at 1 p.m. All are welcome. No RSVP is required.

There will be one additional training on NVivo 10/11 this spring semester 2016. “Tapping Social Media Data using NCapture and NVivo Basic” is scheduled 1:30-3:30 p.m. Friday, April 22, in 401B Hale Library.
