WEEK 16 | Capstone Progress[10/13- 10/19]

On September 12, Dr. Gutierrez from the Department of Psychology sent me an email proposing a new idea for the current project, which I missed until October 13. Therefore, our communication about future modification this semester starting from that day.

Basically, it is like a side study of the original research which would allow researchers to run the study during covid with the graduate students from the Department of Psychology rather than with children with ASD.

The idea of Dr. Gutierrez is like this: use the learning structure of the current project to teach graduate students from the Department of Psychology something they don’t already know, say Japanese or Chinese characters. Then compare the results of the group teaching by VR with the one teaching by a live person.

In my first glance at the idea, I thought that keeping the current models while replacing the questions with another language would achieve better testing results since the models having animations according to the behaviors of players.

However, I found a problem with this approach soon enough: it was sounded really wired with two kinds of artificial voice combined together. It would be much better if I can record the voice of a real person.

Therefore, I chose another approach which was keeping the voice while replacing the models with foreign characters.

Here is my first prototype for the first week:

I heard the feedback from Dr. Gutierrez the same morning: he thought it looked great and shared more detailed suggestions for the further modification of the project.
