- Transcription: here you’ll learn to use the transcription tool in NVivo. You’ll get a demo of how you transcribe, how you analyse your transcriptions, and we quickly cover some things to keep in mind before you start transcribing. The course is aimed at users with a basic knowledge of NVivo.
- Literature review: this course teaches you how you can use NVivo to do a literature review. The course gives you an overview of the workflow for using NVivo for a literature review, and how you can code your articles. The course is aimed at users with a basic knowledge of NVivo.
