“Exploring Advanced Features of Qualtrics” is scheduled 1:30–3:30 p.m. Friday, July 31, online on Zoom. All students, faculty, and staff who use this research suite are welcome to attend.
The Qualtrics tool that powers K-State Survey is one of the most sophisticated online survey and research tools on the market. At K-State, it is used for research, teaching assessment, event registration, large-scale policy compliance trainings, late TEVAL evaluations, and more. There is also an integration from Qualtrics to NVivo 12 Plus for direct access to online survey data for qualitative and mixed methods analysis.
“Tapping Social Media Data with NCapture and NVivo” will be offered 1:30-3:30 p.m. Friday, July 17, on Zoom. This presentation provides an overview of the NCapture browser add-on (to Google Chrome and Microsoft IE) as a tool for extracting information from social media platforms and will explore how the extracted data is analyzed using NVivo 12 Plus, a qualitative and mixed methods data analysis tool. (The NVivo for Mac now enables this functionality as well.)
An “Intro to NVivo 12 Plus” training is scheduled from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Friday, July 3, for all faculty, graduate students, and staff who may be using this qualitative (and mixed methods, multimethods) data analysis tool. This session will occur on Zoom.
This presentation, which covers NVivo 12 Plus / NVivo (newest) basics, will address the following:
The basic parts of the NVivo 12 Plus interface
How to start and structure a research project (including a team project)
How to set up a project around a base language (Chinese/PRC, English/US, English/UK, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese/Brazil, and Spanish
How to ingest various multimedia file types (and curate heterogeneous and semi-structured digital data and digitized contents)
How to ingest some social media contents
How to begin manual and/or automated coding various media file types
How to run data queries in the tool and analyze resulting data visualizations (word clouds, word trees, matrices, geographical maps, bar charts, and others)
“Exploring Advanced Features of Qualtrics” is scheduled 1:30–3:30 p.m. Fri., Nov. 22, in 306 Calvin Hall (a computer lab). All students, faculty, and staff who use this research suite are welcome to attend.
NVivo 12 Plus, the world’s leading qualitative data analytics software, has recently released a new version. A training session on the new features (Windows) will be offered 2-4 p.m., Fri., June 22, in Calvin 306. There will be time for plenty of questions–as needed. The room will be open from 1:30-4:30 p.m.
An RSVP is NOT required. All are welcome.
Participants are welcome to bring their own laptops and follow along if they wish. Please note that the Windows and Mac versions of NVivo are somewhat different (although becoming more similar in functional capabilities over time).
This latest version features some new analytics tools, including one for qualitative cross-tab analysis. This software has a data exchange integration with IBM’s SPSS. There are new data visualizations features as well.
Representatives from MathWorks will host a MATLAB seminar 3-5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24, in 1109 Engineering Hall, which is adjacent to Durland Hall (see building locator map). This event is free to all K-State faculty, staff, and students. Registration is requested although walk-ins are welcome.
MATLAB is a programming environment for algorithm development, data analysis, visualization, and numerical computation. Using MATLAB, you can solve technical computing problems faster than with traditional programming languages, such as C, C++, and FORTRAN.
The creators of RapidMiner are offering free licenses to their software tool to all faculty and students at Kansas State University. Steve Farr (firstname.lastname@example.org), Communities Director at RapidMiner, shared the following information.
On Tuesday, Aug. 17, K-State transitioned to the new Qualtrics interface which is called the Qualtrics Insight Platform. As part of this update, Qualtrics introduced new features, including a new projects framework, more options for distributing surveys, and an improved way to view responses and results.
