VR Smart Speaker Concepts – Privacy and Usability

Study description


I am a BSc Computing Science student at the University of Glasgow, currently undertaking my final year dissertation project.

I’m looking for some participants to take part in a study in VR, where you will be testing different smart speaker output methods. Our aim is to test out these concepts in a VR environment, considering the privacy and usability aspects of each concept.

This study should take around 45 minutes to an hour and will have you testing each of the conditions that we have implemented in VR, before answering some questions about each one. This study will be conducted through zoom, as this will allow me to guide you through each of the conditions and conduct the post-study questionnaire. All participants must be over the age of 18.

If you’d like to participate, please feel free to add your availability and contact details onto the doodle link provided and I will be in contact with you in due course – https://doodle.com/mm/jackleggat/book-a-time

Any questions, feel free to email me at 2314380L@student.gla.ac.uk



Participant requirements

During the study, you will be asked to complete tasks using one of the following:

  • Oculus Quest 1
  • Oculus Quest 2

You’ll also need:

  • Zoom – I’ll be using this to guide you through the study, as well as ask you some questions afterwards (this will be recorded)
  • An area large enough to stand up in, but close enough to your PC to hear instructions and communicate over zoom
  • To be able to load an APK file onto your Oculus Quest device – any issues or questions about this, please feel free to send me an email
