Study of the Corona virus simulator
The following is a study about the Corona virus simulator, which allows you to explore how different variables influences the spread of virus, and how this in turn affects the healthcare system and the ability to treat infected patients.
The study is in three parts:
1) The first and shortest part is a survey, which you should complete before you try the simulator. This part takes a couple of minutes to complete on average.
2) The second part is trying out the simulator. You are free to try it for as long as you like, but we recommend spending at least 5 minutes exploring the different parameters and outcomes, and for browsing through the accompanying text.
3) The third part is another survey, which you should answer after trying out the simulator. This survey takes on average 5 minutes to complete, depending on the level of detail in your answers.

The Corona simulator is developed by Dr. Thomas Riisgaard Hansen. This study about the simulator is conducted by Professor Peter Dalsgaard of Aarhus University, Denmark. Collected data are anonymised and will be used for a study into how explorable explanations, such as the simulator, may influence people's understanding of phenomena such as viruses, and the parameters that influence their spread. Please contact Professor Peter Dalsgaard, dalsgaard@cavi.au.dk, for further information about the study.
