| Online Mixed-Methods Research Analysis Software

I’m in the midst of designing my research project and writing the methodology chapter for my dissertation proposal. I’m going to do Action Research and will be utilizing a mixed-methods (quantitative and qualitative) data. I had heard most people talk about NVivo as the software of choice for qualitative research, especially, so I went to check it out. Big problem! NVivo is Windows only. They said they are releasing a Mac version in late 2013, but that makes me nervous. So, I went on the hunt.

dedooseThat’s when I found It was designed by mixed-method researchers at UCLA. It looks great. It is completely web-based, multi-user, and only costs 12.95/month. I’m going to download a free month trial to see how it works. Just watching the introduction video helped me get a better grasp on mixed-method research. That alone was worth the hunt.
