Augmented Experiences

Are you a staff member and curious about VR?
This study is exploring the experiences of office workers using a VR program.

If you’ve worked at the University of Sydney (including tutors and casuals) in the last two years, we'd love to hear from you!

Participants will be asked to answer survey questions and try a VR headset experience over two sessions. Nothing scary!

Participants who complete both sessions will be reimbursed for their time.
