Some initial screenshots from the experiment I am conducting with ShoutSpace. We decided to have three experimental conditions: the first where participants can communicate using a standard chat utility. The second where participants enrich the conversation with spatial information and finally a mixed condition where they are free to use a standard utility or the spatialized one.
Running pre-experiments is extremely important to understand how to correctly balance the experiment and how to prepare the descriptions of the setting. A little difference in these documents might result in a complete different result. The next step is to understand how to analyze the tons of data that we are collecting.
