Feedback and Computer Game design in web surveys

The demo below is actually a demo of two things: an example of what I mean when I claim that surveys should be entertaining: individual feedback based on the respondent's own answers. The survey extract includes two different versions of the same feedback: the text-based feedback was as far as we could come in the 2002-2003 study (see ) and the animated feedback that is a Master Thesis work (see ). The demo is in Swedish. If you need assistance using it, please contact me at balter at kth.se. Hints: answer "ja" (yes) on all questions on feedback. There is no feedback after the energy consumption.

Feedback during lectures

The demo below was developed for classes in presentation techniques. The Bingo card list deficiencies the lecturer may have. ANy student that discovers five in a row of these calls out "Bingo!" during the lecture.
