Qualitative Data Analysis Web App

There are a number of useful qualitative data analysis software programs available today (HyperResearch, NVivo, and Atlas.ti are among them).  Reputable companies offer free trials, and I encourage you to test-drive these (costly) programs before purchasing one — to be sure it will do what your research requires.

Dedoose.com offers a web-based qualitative (and quantitative) data analysis web app.  The first month is free, and after that, there is a (modest) monthly charge.  Data are encrypted, and it is possible to collaborate (on data analysis) with other Dedoose app account holders.  I haven’t tried this one yet, but this might be worth a look!  — EdProf
