Highly Personalized User Interfaces and Older Adults Study
We are conducting a study as part a larger investigation of personalization behavior and individual differences in how older adults interact with notifications. As part of this effort we are investigating how older adults think about, organize and classify the notifications and messages they receive. This includes but is not limited to mobile devices. Activities involved will be mainly limited to talking about your experiences with notifications as well as sorting and grouping cards showing potential notifications. You will be asked to share a few (5-10) of your own notifications in as much detail as you desire if you are comfortable with it.

The study will take approximately one hour to one hour and fifteen minutes of your time. You will be compensated $15 for participating.

The study is available to anyone who meets the following:
-Is 50 years of age or older
-Owns and has used a device (e.g. phone, laptop, tablet) that receives notifications for more than six months
-Speaks English fluently

Participation times are negotiable, and will take place at the UBC Computer Science building.
