Research Methods
Online Research
We adapted some eye-tracking, looking time and behavioral studies to online format as well.
004-Online Research

These studies are also open to families who can’t visit us in person. Most of our online studies require a computer or a laptop with microphone and webcam. Unfortunately most of our stimuli don’t appear correctly on a tablet or a phone, so it’s usually not possible to participate with those devices. We make a video recording during online studies so that we can analyse children’s behavioral and verbal responses later.

The Experience

Making an appointment

We invite families to each study separately, usually via phone. We make an appointment with the parents about a week ahead so that everyone can choose a convenient time slot.

Warmup (10-15 mins.)

As families arrive in our center, they meet the person running the study who explains the procedure and the goal of the study in detail and engages the children in play to make them feel comfortable. This takes place in a colourful, friendly reception area.

Study (5-10 mins.)

We escort the family to a separate room where we involve the child in a game or show them a short video, and record their different responses and looking patterns.


After the session we return to the reception area where the children can choose a small gift and we discuss the study with the parents.
