Workshop 1. Qualitative Analysis with WebQDA

Participants on Workshop 1. Qualitative Analysis with WebQDA must bring by personal laptop computer and register new account at

The software

webQDA is a software to support the analysis of qualitative data in a collaborative and distributed environment. Although there are some software packages that address non-numeric and unstructured data(text, image, video, audio) in qualitative analysis, there are few that can be used by several researchers in a collaborative work environment and distributed as the Internet can offer. webQDA is a software directed to researchers in different contexts, that need to analyze qualitative data, individually or collaboratively, synchronously or asynchronously.
webQDA follows the structural and theoretical design of other programs available in the market, differentiating itself by providing online, real-time collaborative work and a service that supports the research process.

Four webQDA 3-month licenses will be drawn among the workshop participants.
