Personal Observations: ATLAS.ti is a powerful piece of software for analyzing content. They keep improving the product, but this reviewer only has access to version 6.2, and this access is through the university's site license for faculty. While not an intuitive software, it is not overly difficult to learn to use. One of the most difficult parts is learning to effectively code information. As one is working with a set of interviews, documents, photos, or whatever, it is easy to realize that when one started, what they thought was the best way to code may not have been, so there can be a high learning curve. As one gains more experience doing work like this, it is likely to become easier. Also, as a project grows over time, set coding methods make training others to code much easier.
