Atlas.ti

If they so wish, the staff and students may also install the software on their home computers.

 

For Windows you need both files below, they include code. For Mac you can ask code it-helpdesk@uta.fi. ATLAS.ti is suitable for analysing text, image and sound files and it recognises many different file types. The programme itself does not make any analyses, but it is a tool for typifying and classifying information and for making various searches. An analysis made with ATLAS.ti can be continued numerically, for example with SPSS.

User licence
  • The user licence of the software will be valid until the right to study or the employment relationship ends.
  • Keeping the software active requires the user to sign in to the Office 365 service at least every 30 days.
