Below are links to materials that tell you how to undertake some of the basic activities in using MAXQDA such as importing documents and starting projects, coding and its organisation, creating memos, text and code searching, reporting and retrieving information.
Many software developers now produce their own teaching materials that cover the basics of the software use. Where this is so the links below are to their materials. In other cases there are links to materials on this site that cover older versions of the software to help those who are still using these versions.
