Hi,

I am a doctoral student at Clemson University and am working with Dr. Sheila Backman on a research roject 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 for at least 6 months.

 

Participation length: 30-45 minutes

Activity: Treasure Hunt Activity

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

 

Dates and Times:

Dates: April 30th/ May 1st/ or May 2nd, 2011

Times:

        Between 7:00AM (PST) to 9:00AM (PST)

        Between 10:00AM (PST) to 12:00PM (PST)

        Between 5:00PM (PST) to 7:00 PM (PST)

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 two Web surveys 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.

Best Regards,

I disagree! Why go to Australia and New Zealand? Why not just stay put in Singapore?

It's like me going to Cyprus... why not just go to England?

Kenya would be an adventure of a lifetime. I myself would love going to South Africa if it weren't for the ridiculously over inflated prices.
