We are Alberto Mora (Ph.D. student under the supervision of Dr. Joan Arnedo Moreno in IT, KISON Group at Open University of Catalonia and Dr. Carina Gonzalez in the ITED Group at University of La Laguna) and Gustavo Tondello (Ph.D. student under the supervision of Dr. Lennart Nacke in the HCI Games Group and Dr. Daniel Vogel in the Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo).
We are looking for volunteers to take part in an exploratory study of user types of gameful digital applications and personalization of gameful design elements. This research intends to explore how different user types would prefer to personalize their gameful digital applications in different ways. If you decide to volunteer, you will be asked to complete a 10-15 minute online survey that is completed anonymously. Survey questions focus on your preferences while using digital applications and games and your preferences when gameful design elements are proposed in a different way.
In appreciation for your time, you can enter your name into a draw for two 50 virtual Visa gift cards (or equivalent in another currency, aprox. $74 CAD).
We would like to assure you that the study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through the Ethic Committees of the involved Universities. However, the final decision about participation is yours.
