Using the Excel to NVivo Import Wizard (NVivo for Windows – Version 11)

This short video demonstrates the steps for importing an Excel file containing mixed data (open and closed questions) into NVivo and how NVivo handles this data as well as the practical benefits of having a properly constituted NVivo database.

NVivo for MAC – Top Coding Stripe Tips

Review your coding using coding stripes in NVivo for MAC

Using a Matrix in NVivo

Matrices are very powerful for intersecting or cross-tabulating items in your database. This example looks at cross referencing interviews with a coding scheme to do an in-case-or cross case analysis but you can use matrices to cross references nodes with each other to check for co-occurrences or to consider nodes with demographic/profiling information from participants or even closed and open questions in a questionnaire. Matrices offer a strategic view of data that you could not get by say, reading through the contents of a node, because they reveal previously unseen patterns in your data.

Import from Excel to MAC & Autocode

This five minute tutorial demonstrates how to import a questionnaire from Excel into NVivo for MAC and auto-code to create open ended questions and cases and link closed questions or demographics to cases. Auto-coding datasets in MAC is only available in version 11 or higher. 

Learn Basic Coding techniques

Here, Deborah Rowe shows the basic mechanics of coding in NVivo. Combining these hands on skills with an analytical or coding strategy will ensure you meet both an academic and technical standard in your research endeavours

Visualizations in NVivo 9

This QSR video looks at visualisations in NVivo:

Tutorial 14 Exporting Coded Video Clips from Nodes in NVivo

This is a very short three minute clip demonstrating how to export video clips from nodes in NVivo to HTML files for viewing and sharing. In this example, the video clip is non-embedded in NVivo as this is the case with most videos because they tend to be very large files:

Tutorial 13 – using a coding strategy

This short video offers a simple practical example of using NVivo to bring efficiency and transparency to your analytical strategy. This can be a very useful way of ensuring your processes are  entirely consistent with your chosen data analysis methodology and its philosophical underpinnings. This example shows three cycles of coding moving from the descriptive (participant led) to the interpretive (participant and researcher led) and final abstraction (researcher led). It encompasses three common elements from many methodologies: coding, managing codes and documenting and synthesizing codes. The example is from a real study courtesy of National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG)

Tutorial 12 -Importing from Excel into NVivo (Datasets) and Autocoding

This tutorial will show you how to import a mixed methods questionnaire from Excel (perhaps downloaded from a service such as Survey Monkey) to a properly constituted NVivo project database. It will show how three automated processes will complete the process and create a robust NVivo project ready for analysis.It assumes the concept of the case node is understood. It uses Auto-coding as two of those processes:

Tutorial 11 – Backing up Your NVivo Data File

This tutorial looks at two ways of backing up your NVivo data file:

Tutorial 10 – customizing your work space to code video

We had the following question posted on the forum concerning coding video and customising the NVivo workspace to facilitate ease of coding:So we have posted a tutorial to deal with this site memeber's question below:

Tutorial 9 – Auto-coding Media Files in NVivo

Tutorial 3 dealt with auto-coding regular textual files such as MS Word. This short tutorial demonstrates how to auto-code media files in NVivo 9 & 10. That is, audio, video or images. The process and outcomes are exactly the same as using text files but the approach is slightly different:

Tutorial 8 – Reviewing your NVivo coding using the coding stripes and highlighter tools

Reviewing and managing your coding can be as important as coding itself. This tutorial shows you how to use the coding stripes and highlighter tools to review your data. You can review a transcript or code (node) to see what has been coded to and to where. These tools work with text and all media files such as audio, video or images:

Tutorial 7 – Formatting in Word for Auto-coding – Part 2

Tutorial 7 - Part two. Having formatted in Word, here are the steps for auto-coding in NVivo

Formatting in Word for Auto-coding in NVivo

This tutorial is designed as part 1 of 2 tutorials:How to format a Word document which reflects your topic guide which should have been derived from your research question. How to autocode the formatted document in NVivo

Tutorial 6 – Transcribing within NVivo

This tutorial is a simple example of transcribing within NVivo. You get absolute synchronisation between the audio and textual files. So, for example, you can text search audio files and when you code a lot of content to a node, you can read/listen to get the best understanding possible from your data.

Tutorial 5 – ‘uncoding’ incorrectly coded content from a node

A short tutorial on how to remove, incorrectly coded content using NVivo 9 & 10. Uncoding from a node is asimple process as demonstrated below:

NVivo 9 or 10 – Tutorial 4 – coding audio or any media file

In NVivo 8, 9 or 10 it is possible to code audio, video images or indeed any media file direct from the source. It is exactly the same process as one have hitherto applies to a textual transcript. See this brief demonstration:

NVivo 9 or 10 – Tutorial 3 – auto coding

A simple of example of auto-coding using NVivo 9 & 10:

NVivo 9 or 10 – Tutorial 2 – making cases in NVivo and linking them to demographics

Tutorial 2 - connecting sources to demographics NVivo allows for full integration between intangibles such as attitudes and beliefs coded to a node or theme and tangibles such as demographics which may act as an external force which influences such attitudes and beliefs. This integration allows researchers to see patterns in their data and indeed ask very sophisticated questions of their data. This is a brief demonstration of the set up process needed to make this facility available in your NVivo database and is designed to accompany the 'day 1' training workshop 'Introduction to NVivo - setting up your database'

NVivo 9 or 10 – Tutorial 1 – Importing sources into NVivo 9 & 10

NVivo 8 – Tutorial 2 – where are my case nodes and casebook gone in NVivo 9 or 10?

Tutorial 2 - connecting sources to demographics NVivo allows for full integration between intangibles such as attitudes and beliefs coded to a node or theme and tangibles such as demographics which may act as an external force which influences such attitudes and beliefs. This integration allows researchers to see patterns in their data and indeed ask very sophisticated questions of their data.
