Research tools that can be used for qualitative research

What is NVivo?

NVivo is software that enables you to collect, code, organize, and analyze content from interviews, focus group discussions, surveys, audio, social media, videos and webpages.

NVivo is available for both Windows and MacOS; however, because the MacOS version is a newer product, it is missing some features found in the PC version

NVivo is not free but a 14-day free trial is available and the software is also available via ThunderApps. NOTE: You will need to contact the AIT HelpDesk to gain access and also have the permission of your professor/advisor to use the software.
