Qualitative data analysis software programs can be useful tools if they are used correctly. In the first part of this presentation, I will discuss some of the advantages and disadvantages of using qualitative data analysis software programs. I will also provide an overview of some of the main programs such as: NVivo, Atlas-ti, Ethograph, and Dedoose. In the second part of the presentation, I will provide a brief demonstration of NVivo 10.
