Participants needed for a virtual reality experiment

My name is Mortaja Alqassab and I am a graduate student from Electrical and
Computer Engineering Department at the University of Waterloo. I am
contacting you because I am conducting a study in my graduate research for
my Master’s thesis on the topic of “Human Performance and Cognitive
Workload in Haptic, Audio and Visual Environments” under the supervision of
Professor David Wang of the Department of Electrical and Computer
Engineering at the University of Waterloo. I am currently seeking
volunteers as participants in this study.
 
If you volunteer for this study, you will be asked to wear a noise
cancelling headset, use a computer monitor and use a haptic device. A
haptic device is used for bilateral touch communication between the user
and a computer simulation. You will be asked to complete 3 virtual reality
settings. Each setting will last 5 minutes. A one minute training session
will precede each virtual reality setting. A break will be given after
completing 3 tasks. After completing all virtual reality setting, you will
be asked to fill out a questionnaire and asked general questions about your
experience and you will be given a feedback and appreciation letter. This
study will approximately last 30 minutes.
   
I would like to assure you that the study has been reviewed and received
ethics clearance through a University of Waterloo Research Ethics Committee
(ORE#20633). However, the final decision to participate is yours. If you
are interested in participating, please contact me at *malqassa@uwaterloo.ca
<malqassa@uwaterloo.ca>* with the best days and best times for you. Should
you have any questions or concerns about the study, please do not hesitate
to contact Professor David Wang at dwang@uwaterloo.ca or 519-888-4567
 x33968.
