VR + Japanese Language Memorisation

This project is not currently recruiting participants

Study description

An Oculus Rift/Rift S experiment testing a system designed to help people memorise Japanese words. The experiment is designed to test how well variants of the system help people learn.

What is involved?

  • You will be asked to listen to some Japanese words and asked if you know the meaning
  • You will then be put into the VR learning environment where you will spend 15 minutes attempting to learn 20 Japanese words
  • You will listen to the same Japanese words and be asked if you remember their meaning
  • You will be asked to fill in a questionnaire about your experience
