Players Wanted for VR Study

If you have a VR headset, Glasgow School of Art research student Austin Wolf is inviting you to take part in a study about narrative engagement in VR – based upon Scottish folklore.

Austin has created a study to explore the opportunities offered by VR in terms of storytelling towards a framework for creating and monitoring narrative engagement in interactive cinematic VR experiences.

The story presented is based on Scottish folklore. It involves both an anonymous post questionnaire and observational recorded data (note taking). To keep everything safe and to observe the current travel/meeting restrictions, observation will take place through video chat. The footage will not be recorded.

VR study sessions should take no more than 20-44 minutes.
