This satellite event will provide a tutorial overview of the new-and-improved version of The Experiential Learning Lab (TELLab2), a web-based system that allows students to create and run their own psychology experiments, either by copying and modifying one of the existing experiments, or creating a new one entirely from scratch.  The TELLab project was begun a number of years ago by Ken Nakayama and others at Harvard University, and continues today under Ken’s leadership from his new position as adjunct professor at UC Berkeley.  TELLab2 is still in development, but is targeted to be ready for production use in fall classes this year.  This satellite will give a sneak preview of some of the new features not available in the original TELLab, and provide an opportunity for the potential user community to request the additional features that would be most useful in their own teaching.

After a short introduction, TELLab2 gurus will provide a live demonstration of some of the new capabilities.  Complete details can be found on TELLab’s satellite information website:  http://vss.tellab.org.  Potential attendees are welcome to visit the beta version of the site at http://lab2.tellab.org, with the caveat that the site is still in flux and not all of the advertised features are fully-functional as of this writing.

Hope to see you there.  Happy experimenting!
