The following sections outline some of the more common exercises that can be used to engage with participants in live sessions.
Moderators and participants can share their screen without needing any additional downloads. This can be useful for usability studies.
Note: The above screenshot shows the Respondent’s view of a Moderator sharing their screen.
2: Displaying and Drawing on Stimuli
Currently, InterVu supports static images (e.g., .jpg, .png, .gif files). Users will have the ability to display .pdf files in the near future and additional stimuli formats (e.g., .mp3, .mp4) will also be supported eventually.
Stimuli can only be displayed by the Moderator(s). For the stimuli to become visible for the participant, the Moderator needs to click on a stimuli icon on the bar to the right of the screen.
2.1: Enabling Draw Tools
The Moderator can enable Draw tools. When enabled, each participant will automatically be assigned a color. In order to mark up the stimuli, participants need to click on the Marker icon that will appear on the left-hand side of the stimuli.
2.2: Syncing Participant Mark Ups
Participants can mark stimuli, independent of one another. This helps eliminate biases and participants influencing one another’s mark ups.
When the “Sync” feature is turned ON, all participants are able to see marks of other participants.
When the “Sync” feature is turned OFF, participants will only be able to see their own marks.
3: Displaying Polling Questions
Four types of polling questions can be displayed in InterVu – Multiple Choice – Single Answer questions, Multiple Choice – Multiple Answer questions, Open-ended text questions, and Ranking Exercises. Regardless of the type of poll, the Moderator is able to see the results in real time.
3.1: Multiple Choice – Single Answer Questions
3.2: Multiple Choice - Multiple Answer Questions
3.3: Open-ended Text Questions
3.4: Ranking Exercises
Participants can drag and drop the available answers to rank them in order.
