OpenCode 3.6 is a tool for coding qualitative data generated from text information such as interviews, observations or field notes. It has been developed to specifically follow the first steps of the Grounded Theory methodology. However, it can of course be used as a tool for classifying and sorting any kind of qualitative text information. The aim has been to create a self-instructive program that is easy to learn and easy to use.
Store and edit an electronic data notebook of cultural events in a form conducive to qualitative analysis
In the FieldWorks suite of applications, Data Notebook was the first major product released, and it's probably the most polished. DN and FLEx have a similar look and feel, but DN is simpler (fewer "moving parts").
As you experience various cultural events, you may want to jot down some notes on paper, but even so you should type up the event as soon as possible so that when you or someone else reads it much later, it will make sense. You should probably also mark the event write-up in DN with metadata and all relevant OCM codes before considering the write-up to be complete.
