Hi,

I am a doctoral student at Clemson University and am working with Dr. Sheila Backman on a research project for my dissertation. We are recruiting participants to take part in our research study. This research is open to any Second Life users, who (a) are 18 years of age or older, and (b) have owned and maintained a valid Second Life character (“Avatar”) and account ("Participants") for at least 6 months.

 Participation length: 30-45 minutes

 Raffle Prizes: 5,000 Linden Dollars (five winners)

 Dates and Times

Dates: April 27th/ 28th, 2011

Times: 10:00AM (PST) to 12:00PM (PST).

 

Location

Masai Tourism Island (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Massai%20Tourism/101/78/22)

I (Yu Chih Andel) and Dr. Backman (Sharper Shinn) will be at Masai Tourism Island at the above times to welcome you. We will be located at the front desk of the reception area.

 

Description

Your participation in our study will involve visiting a destination in Kenya within Second Life. You will receive instructions to participate in a treasure hunt activity and explore the site during your visit. This activity will take you about 30-45 minutes to complete. After the completion of activity, you will take part in a Web survey as part of the in-world activity to evaluate your experience while visiting this site. Participants will be asked to provide their Avatar’s name at the end of web survey, which will enter them into a random drawing. Multiple entries from the same person will not be accepted.

 

Prize

The researcher will randomly select five winners from all eligible participants on May 10th, 2011. The prize of 5,000 Linden Dollars will be given in-world to each of the five winners. The winners will be notified via in-world message so the prize can be awarded to your avatar accounts. The prize is non- transferable, and no cash substitutes for prizes are available.

 

If you have any questions, please contact Yu-Chih Huang at yhuang@clemson.edu.

 

Best Regards,

 

Yu-Chih Huang (in-world Yu Chih Andel)

PhD Candidate in Park, Recreation and Tourism Management at Clemson University

 

Dr. Shelia Backman (in-world Sharper Shinn)

Professor in Park, Recreation and Tourism Management at Clemson University
