How to code multiple test-subjects in same video

01.10.2020, 12:18

Dear fellow researchers,
I want to code the behavior of seven test-subjects that have been recorded in the same video. My research is interested in the inter relatedness of certain actions by different people in collaborative processes.

For this I have already a coding scheme that maps certain actions that I'm interested in but I don't yet have found a way to assign these actions in the video to specific people. Of course I could copy the same coding system for each individual and have their name as root-code. However that means that if I want to make any changes to any of the action codes I have to do this seven times. Also later I want to compare actions with the same code in-between the different test-subjects.

There must be a better way to do this, any advice?
Thank you.

Hi Joris,

Just to clarify one thing: Are you going to transcribe your video and/or describe the actions taking place in the video in the minutes? If you intend to code only the video, the analysis you have in mind would be difficult to implement.
