Nvivo7 & qualitative research

Just been to a course for beginners on Nvivo 7 software and it is very good. I like it because it makes the whole process of coding interviews and focus groups so quick and easy, and it’s also simple to get reports about your data and so on. I wish it had been around when I did my Masters degree dissertation, and it’s so easy that I believe it could be used by undergraduates to practice the basics of qualitative research. Of course, they’d need to be taught some of those basics beforehand, but there’s nothing like having to handle data itself to really ram home the learning outcomes!

So next time we do a focus group or interview based piece of research then this software will be top of my list of resources needed.
