This is an open call for participants for an academic survey on skill acquisition in World of Warcraft.
We are searching for World of Warcraft players of all levels to take a 15-20 minute online survey, to help with our research project on transfer of knowledge (specifically skills) within digital environments. This research is a part of our Research Master’s research project at Utrecht University, Netherlands within the Media & Performance studies programme.
Being gamers before we were students, we were naturally, very interested in bringing together our love of MMORPGs (ranging from World of Warcraft itself to a variety of other text-based and graphic-based MMORPGs) into the classroom, and thus, resulted in the creation of this research project, of which more details can be read on the Web site.
If you would be able to take the survey (http://vw-researchproject.110mb.com), we would greatly appreciate it.
If you have any questions about this project or the survey, please e-mail us at : vw.researchproject[ΑΤ]gmail.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
- This is a call for participants for an academic survey, no one is asked to buy any product/service. Furthermore, one of the admins gave his permission to make this post and I do not think they would allow ads. Vw.researchproject (talk) 08:48, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
- No problem. We are here to answer any questions related to this survey or this research in general. Naturally we asked for permission first, we wish for people to take the survey so it would not really work to our advantage to upset the members of this community by going against the rules :) Vw.researchproject (talk) 11:01, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
- Aye, I was asked, and I don't see an issue with research projects on WoWWiki :) Since, well, we're here to help! 19:24, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
