A World of Warcraft Survey

My friend Liz Danforth sent me the following email about a research survey being done with players of World of Warcraft. If you’ r, see what you can do to give her a hand.

As you may know, I’ve been preparing an independent research study on skills acquired in World of Warcraft that may transfer to real life. After considerable delay, the survey is now LIVE and ready to go.

I’m dropping this into your inbox in hopes that — if you play WoW or if you have EVER played (even if you don’t play now) — you will take the survey. Some of you don’t play, but I have reason to think you may know someone who does or did.

I hope you will all forward this email to anyone you know who plays or has ever played, and ask them to fill out the survey. Friends, co-workers, relatives, student, guild mates and ex-guild mates (all ages) who play or have played are encouraged to take part. Those who opt-in may receive a time card for WoW as described in the survey.

The research is being conducted under the auspices of Dr. Chris Johnson of the 21st Century Learning Group LLC.

Here is the link to begin the survey: http://s-692ke-48878.sgizmo.com/i/17374e3361178p20842

The survey is open until the end of April 2009. Thanks so very much!

Liz

  1. Although I don’t play myself (know I would get addicted, so ‘just say no’), have forwarded the link onto a friend of mine who did play until fairly recently. As she said with regards WoW skills in real life: ‘Personally I find the murlocs always hanging around [the shops] are a real pain in the arse, I just want a loaf of bread and I left my DPS gear at home!’

    1. Ha! I don’t play WoW regularly, although I have fooled around with it. I have plenty of other MMOs grabbing my attention on a professional level these days, including The Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons & Dragons Online, and Guild Wars.

  3. Hi, I’m currently a fourth year student from the Philippines who is also preparing a research about skills gained from Warcraft. May I ask for the results of your survey so that I could also use it for my paper? I will not plagiarize, I swear. Thanks. my email: jarg82394atyahoo.com
