Via GSU's subscription to Lynda.com, you have FREE access to lots of training resources. Linked below is the NVivo course, and search by keyword (e.g. SPSS) to find more courses.
NVivo 1 for Windows: Getting Started - Basics of importing and coding different types of data sources. PREREQUISITE: Basic understanding of qualitative research methods is suggested, but not required. Watching this short tutorial on coding qualitative data before attending the workshop is recommended.
NVivo 2 for Windows: Exploring your Data - Classifications and queries to explore/analyze coded data sources. PREREQUISITE: NVivo 1 or equivalent experience (e.g., completing this Lynda.com tutorial).
Functionality of Windows vs. Mac:
The Mac version of NVivo does not have the full functionality that the Windows Pro version has--see this comparison chart to explore the differences in functionality, and be sure to compare NVivo for Mac to NVivo Pro (the Windows version that GSU has).
Options for running NVivo for Windows on a Mac computer:
The company that produces NVivo, QSR International, recommends specific Windows parallels/virtual desktops to install on Macs to then run NVivo Pro for Windows--see this site for those resources.
