  1. Computer assisted content analysis How to qualitatively analyze medium to

    large corpus of texts Alberto Lusoli, Simon Fraser University. School of Communication
  2. Manual coding for Content Analysis Automated coding Computer-assisted coding Broad

    textual analysis
  3. Ideal for qualitative and idiographic inquiries Interviews Field notes Meeting

    minutes Suitable for small to medium corpus of data unsuitable for analyzing large corpus of texts Social media data Longitudinal data
  4. Creating a course project

  5. Content analysis Categories: Uniquely tailored to available texts and problems

  6. Computer based analysis Suitable for quantitative studies High reliability Validity

    might be limited
  7. Automated analysis in Nvivo Sentiment Autocoding Download the project here:

  8. Using software to facilitate the human coding of large corpus

    of texts
  9. Example Studying historical digital archives. Investigation on Harvard Business School

    pedagogy
  10. Example Theory Historical documents OCR Semi-automated codification Analysis Discussion

  11. Content analysis with Nvivo An example with a large dataset

    of tweets collected automatically (more on this next week) Download the project here: http://bit.ly/ca-nvivo-pc http://bit.ly/ca-nvivo-mac
