|Overview:||One way to make the VR industry more diverse is by incorporating feedback from under-represented groups. Researcher and Behavioral Scientist, Jessica Outlaw, recruited 20 women (all first-timers to VR) to use different social VR platforms. Using observation, and pre- and post-interview questions, she will report on the findings of this round of user testing. This session will discuss how the participant's expectations about VR influenced their experience, how they approached social interactions, and their perceptions about the potential of the technology. Come learn the specific findings from this study, and get tips on running your own research in the future.|
