The Effects of Humanoid Avatar Gaze on Chat Communication in Virtual Worlds
Division:Life Sciences / None
City:Thornhill, ON
Abstract:This is an experimental project that investigated the effects of an avatar on the quality of communication experienced. Through the analyses, it is determined that the presence of an avatar increases the quality of chat communication. However, it is inconclusive if a direct avatar gaze condition improves upon an indirect avatar gaze condition.
