Earlier this week I posted news about the ASMR video trials entering closed beta – this was meant for us team members only. I originally thought that next month would see the video trials open to the public, but it seems as though with only one technical issue reported, things seem to be going well enough. The video trials were declared to be open as of yesterday, the 27th of October.
“Good news - the first video trial is ready to launch. If you're a volunteer, you'll be getting an email from me in the next 48 hours with a link and your login. If you haven't signed up, you still can - the form is on the main website, under the research tab. Very excited to begin the online trials! This is our first step towards compiling a portfolio, and ultimately towards our grant proposal.” - JennSo, keep checking your email and wait for that message to drop. You have to use your ASMR website and forums login details to access the volunteer workspace. Here you must fill in your profile details, and then progress onto watching the trial video, and then afterwards fill out the survey.
That’s all there is to it. It’s not too daunting, and should only take 15 to 30 minutes total. So if you signed up as a volunteer, please make sure to do your bit and give this video trial a go. There is no real closing date, but it will keep going on until the 2nd video trial is opened.
Like Jenn says, if you haven’t yet signed up, it’s as simple as going over to the ASMR Research & Support website and registering. This is another plus of doing the trials this way. There’s no fixed end date, and you can still join even next month if you want. It’s rather flexible.
