Course Description

Introducing Cases and Classifications

Classifications play a key role in running coding queries, to enable comparisons across files and/or cases. This session introduces cases and classifications, and shows you how to set-up both file and case classifications for your project. If this sounds like a relatively boring aspect of the software, think again! Watch this session to understand just how useful classifications might be in your research.

This session is for researchers who are experienced with NVivo or who have watched NVivo Quick Start.


Asking Questions in NVivo

This session will cover some of the more powerful queries in NVivo – coding, crosstab and matrix coding queries. Learn how to ask questions of your coding – for example, what did males in their twenties say about a particular topic? Or, were participants with a particular view more likely to respond positively to the intervention being studied?

This session is for researchers who are experienced with NVivo or who have watched NVivo Quick Start and the 'Introducing Cases and Classifications' session.


Exploring Data with NVivo Visualizations

The saying "a picture paints a thousand words" very much applies to the visualization tools in NVivo, which can play a key role in both analysing and presenting qualitative data. This session will discuss these different visualization tools in NVivo and provide some practical suggestions for your next project.

This session is for researchers who are experienced with NVivo or who have watched NVivo Quick Start and the 'Introducing Cases and Classifications' session.


NVivo Reporting

While there’s no “magic button” in NVivo that will create a summary report of your analysis, this doesn’t mean that NVivo can’t assist you with reporting, it’s just not something that will happen automatically. In this session we’ll cover the various options for reporting from NVivo.

This session is for researchers who are experienced with NVivo.


A Note About Versions

The videos are presented with the latest version of NVivo for Windows. If you are still using NVivo 12 or are on a Mac, alternative instructions are provided and there are training notes for both versions (Windows and Mac).
