UBC Trivia Study

The UBC Trivia Study is hosted by the Social Cognition and Emotion Lab as part of a project researching online communication in groups.

The study involves completing a 15-minute UBC Trivia Study with your team over Zoom, followed by a 10-minute survey. Prior to the call, you will need to follow instructions to download Zoom and Snap Camera. In total, your participation should last about 1 hour. 

You can sign up with 3-5 friends, or sign up individually and we can match you with a group.

  • UBC students or alumni
  • Stable internet connection and working web camera/microphone
  • Willing to install Zoom and Snap Camera on your computer
  • Willing to be video recorded during the group video call

Our team will send you a consent form and instructions to setup Zoom/Snap Camera. After you have completed the setup, we will schedule a time for your team to play.
