First encounter with NVivo

"I should have attended this training during my first month of arrival. Anyhow, it's never too late to mend, I'll start using it right after this." This was what I thought during the NVivo training session. Although this software is meant for organising collected qualitative data, it could be use to organise the whole research project from the very beginning of research stage. By using this software, I gain more confidence to be able to complete my research on time.

As usual, the training was excellent. I normally evaluate a training like this: If I am going to teach another person afterward, how competence am I? Rank from 0 - 10.

As Confucious said: when you learn then you know how insufficient you are; when you teach then you know how difficult the subject matter you are dealing with. When you realise your insufficiency, you (could) think reflexively; when you realise the difficulty, you (could) improve yourself. (学然后知不足,教然后知困。 知不足,然后能自反也;知困,然后能自强也。)

As an instructor myself, I am very demanding when I try to learn a computer application via instructor-led training. She taught so well in this session, despite her illness--I gave her 10+. Bravo!
