CatchBob replay tool
Fabrice is moving forward in the development of the new CatchBob! replay tool. Here are some snapshots of the prototype:
The project consists in developing a tool to replay sessions of interactions with a mobile game called CatchBob!. This game is an experimental platform in the form of a collaborative mobile application for running psychological experiments. In our lab, we are indeed interested in studying how people use mobile devices to carry out collaborative activities.
In this context, a replay tool is a piece of software that displays all the actions undertaken by the players. Such a tool is intended to rebuild and enrich our comprehension of how users performed the activity and to elicit their social and spatial behavior. This visual information might be used both by the researchers (to better understand what happen and compute statistics about it) and the players (to offer a visual support in order to explain the researchers what happened).
