Introduction to NVivo 12 for Windows users (Full day)


Course fee is R 1 000 per person (refreshments provided)


Please note: This training course is for Windows-users only. Participants are required to work on their own personal laptops.


In this short course, you will be introduced to the NVivo12 software. This is a hands-on course in which you are expected to work on your own personal laptops during the session (UCT Staff/Students who do not own a laptop can enquire into renting a laptop from ICTS). 

This course is intended for researchers (from all disciplines):

  • Working with: Qualitative data (interviews, focus groups, field notes, documents, visual and audio data)
  • Who: Preferably have a background in or experience in qualitative research methodology
  • Who want to: use NVivo for managing and coding their data (following general qualitative principles of content, thematic, or narrative analysis, or other similar approaches)
  • Who: have no or little experience with NVivo, but who are interested in using it for research they are currently conducting.

At the end of the course participants will have learned and practised:

  • Setting-up an NVivo project: importing data, creating folders, using case nodes, formatting documents for auto coding, creating audio transcripts
  • Using basic analysis features of NVivo: creating parent and child nodes, coding to nodes, audio-coding, reviewing and changing coding, annotations, applying ‘see also links’, memoing, and performing a basic text query.

NVivo does not analyze qualitative data for the researcher but rather can enhance the researcher’s analytical capacity by providing the means to efficiently store, sort and look for patterns in diverse forms of data.Training in NVivo is not a substitute for qualitative research training.
