Tobii Studio 2.1 Update June 1, 2010Posted by Jon Ward in eye tracking, Studio, Technology, Tips And Tricks, Tobii, Updates.
Tobii Studio 2.1 is officially released so we thought it prudent to let you know a couple of the new functions that have crept in to make your life easier!
1 : Drag and drop of stimuli
If you want to add multiple images, PDF or other stimuli to a test then you can now select them from your desktop and drag the into the Studio window – this will then open up a new window to allow you to sort and adjust the properties for the stimulus. For old Clearview users this will be a welcome return, for new users this will save a lot of time – especially for academic studies.
2 : Ability to change the ESC and F10 functions
With the advent of embedded videos on just about every website we had feedback that pressing ESC was causing issues – as this was used to not only escape full screen mode, but also to quit a Tobii test. Now in the global settings options we can adjust the ESC (quit test) or F10 (advance stimuli) keys to something more generic – and less likely to be pressed by the participant.
3 : Advancing from PDF stimulus
When PDF testing was added to Studio everyone cheered! (Hooray!) and then realised that users accidently advanced beyond the end of the PDF and onto the next stimulus – well not anymore. In the PDF stimuli options you can now choose that the participant cannot advance the timeline on their own.
4 : New statistical tool
The biggest change is the new statistical tool – now allowing A/B and multi variant testing, cross media testing, asking multiple statistical questions across multiple user groups and so on. This upgrade is a huge bonus for quantitative studies and deserving of several blog posts on its own!
5 : Preview test function
A godsend for everyone! No longer will you need to calibrate and record yourself to check your test protocol – pressing F11 or clicking on the preview button at the bottom of the screen will allow you to check the formatting of a single stimulus or the whole test.
There are more things hidden away… more to come soon!
