Telepresence Survey (Spring 2014)

We're studying a kind of media experience that many people have and that researchers have labeled 'telepresence.' We hope to better understand these experiences and how they occur in the normal course of people's lives; we hope that this better understanding will lead to the creation of more useful and enjoyable media experiences in the future.

If you choose to participate, you’ll complete a short online survey containing questions about you and your experiences. It will take 5 to 20 minutes.

There are no reasonably foreseeable risks or discomforts associated with this study. The benefits you will obtain from the research include your learning about your own media experiences (and those of others if you request to receive notice about the study’s results), along with the satisfaction that you have contributed to the understanding of this topic.

The alternative to participating is not to participate, without any consequence.
