A virtual reality application has been developed for this study that utilises a block-based visual programming system within an immersive environment to convey fundamental computer programming instructions. The study requires a participant to play through the short VR game that will last approximately 15-20 minutes and then complete a survey about their experience, taking a total time of around 30 minutes. Using a virtual reality headset, the player will be transported to the UWS moon base where they will take control of a humanoid robot using the VR equipment, the player then undertakes several tasks to avoid a disaster on the moon base.
If you have some free time and would like to try exploring a Virtual Reality environment, then I would be grateful if you could sign up to participate. The study will run from a dedicated space on the Paisley campus and with scheduled 30-minute appointments for each participant to allow compliance with University and Government Covid 19 safety requirements.
