Analyzing qualitative date using NVivo

Short courses


  • Understanding the contribution of NVivo for analyzing qualitative data
  • Using the NVivo interface
  • Importing and organizing data in an NVivo project
  • Coding data
  • Understanding the most advanced features of the software (queries, visualizations, intercoder reliability…)


  • Having collected qualitative data in the past (trainees are encouraged to bring their own data during the training).

Teaching methods:

  • Face-to-face interactions
  • Powerpoint slidedeck
  • Activities based on users’ data and illustrative cases.

Results & skills expected at the end of the training:

Being able to import, organize and analyze qualitative data autonomously. Knowing the features offered by the software in terms of data mining, quantification and vizualisation tools.
