Hello Gamers! My name is Michele Marvel and I am a doctoral student at Walden University. I would like to invite you to participate in a research study that is designed to explore player characteristics, motivation, and participation in MMORPGs. The goal of this research is to provide information that will help educators and game creators to design effective virtual worlds that may be useful in higher education. If you are 18 or older and currently play MMORPGs (like World of Warcraft, Everquest II, Second Life, or Rift) please consider participating in this study.
To participate, all you need to do is to complete an online survey about your personality, gaming habits, and motivation to play MMORPGs. There are a few demographic questions as well. The entire survey should take about 15-20 minutes of your time. All survey responses will be kept confidential and you will not be asked to provide any identifying information as a part of this survey.
If you have any questions about this research project, please do not hesitate to contact me, Michele Marvel, at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also contact my dissertation committee chair, Dr. Hedy Dexter, at email@example.com.
