The goal of this project is to create a web portal for collaborative research on the perception and production of sound. The intent of this web portal is meant to house several studies under one website. Participating laboratories within the Sound Studies Institute can use this as an efficient way to gather data while recruiting new participants for online studies. Our aim is to provide a simple platform to engage participants across cultures and socio-economic status, thereby finding interest in the science of sound, and bring new participants to our campus.
This talk will include why we started up this web portal, the composition of the website, some examples of studies, and the future of SoundOnline.ca.
