session begins with a discussion of key points to be considered when deciding
whether or not to adopt the NVivo8 software, including scale of the project, skills
needed, and budgeting appropriately for both money and time. The basic
architecture of NVivo8 is then introduced with an explanation of projects and
sources, how information is organised in NVivo8 and how to import and organise
session furthers the practical, hands-on introduction to NVivo8, including the
use of nodes and methods of coding text sources in a variety of ways, and other
basics, including its most common document and data handling functions and
architecture such as matrices, cases and attributes, memos and annotations. The
workshop concludes with an introduction to the newer functions of NVivo8 such
as the ability to import audio, video and visual (picture) files and code
directly to these files (bypassing the need for transcription to text).
