• Over the age of 50?
• Do you use a computer to go online?
• Nervous about computing?
I am a graduate student at the University of Texas School
of Information. I’m conducting a research study on how
adults over 50 use the Internet. My hope is that by
understanding how this audience uses technology we may
design user interfaces that are more sensitive to the wants
and needs of older adults.
My study consists of two short surveys and one web site
test, and takes about an hour to complete. Participants will
receive a $5 gift card to Starbucks as compensation for
their time, or I can offer tutoring services as an exchange.
