Be a part of important student-industry research.

Students in VIU’s department of computing science are doing a study that involves evaluating developed fonts for a new kind of digital display. This display (developed by a Canadian company) will replace conventional flip charts and digital projectors commonly used in meetings and classroom. The findings of this study will help with the design of a new font that is clear and easy to read on this type of display.

What’s involved?
Participants will be asked to be available for approximately 30-45 minutes to:
• Complete an interview and short questionnaire
• Read phrases out loud off of a digital display in a VIU meeting space.
Who can participate?
We welcome participation from students, staff, and faculty. In order to be eligible to participate you must be:
• At least 19 years of age
• Able to read common English phrases out loud off of a digital display
Why participate?
This research has the following potential benefits:
• Your feedback will help improve user experience with a new technology being developed by a Canadian technology innovator
• Your participation will help undergraduate students gain valuable hands-on research experience while working with industry
• February 6th to March 7th, 2018
