Full Title:  Mapping social (media) networks with NodeXL: an introduction to network data collection, analysis, visualization and reporting for non-programmers
Presenters:  Marc Smith and Harald Meier

Networks are a powerful source of insights but they remain a challenge for non-programmers to collect, analyze, visualize, and report on.  In this tutorial, users with no software development skills will be introduced to NodeXL, the network overview discovery and exploration add-in for the familiar Excel spreadsheet.  Using a new menu in Excel, NodeXL provides users with the means to get network data sets from a variety of data sources, including Twitter, Wikis, YouTube, and email.  With the NodeXL Automate feature, users can quickly apply expert "recipes" to their data sets to get useful and informative results in a few minutes.  Using network reports generated with NodeXL, scholars can get a quick overview of complex collections of annotated connections.  Network overviews highlight the shape of the virtual "crowd" revealing the relatively few participants with the greatest influence.
