Harvard: Build Your Own Online Lab with Volunteer Science

We will be offering a training workshop on using Volunteer Science to create online studies on Friday, April 21st from 1-4pm at Harvard University in CGIS South S010 Tsai Auditorium. This workshop will demonstrate how online studies are conducted, demo the Volunteer Science system, and provide hands-on guidance to help researchers get studies up and working. Please register so we can keep a headcount and provide enough support services.

Volunteer Science is a platform for creating online studies and recruiting participants. The training workshops will feature a review of approaches to online research with human subjects, including serious games, lab experiments, and citizen science. This overview will be followed by guided walkthroughs of how to set up both a survey-based study and a game-based study. You will receive access to a research team where you can add any number of collaborators, create any number of experiments, and recruit any number of subjects.
