Looking for Test Users – next week – 28.10-01.11

SOPI research group will be conducting a user-test study between the 28th October and 1st November. The experiment will involve user-led interpretation and use of the FLINT interface. Anyone can participate, no prerequisite knowledge or experience is required.

We are currently looking for volunteers willing to give a half an hour of their time between the dates mentioned. The time will be spent interacting with our FLINT interface, followed by answering two short questionnaires and an interview.

We would like to kindly ask you to register through the below doodle link,
