"Presence: Measurement, Effects, Conditions" (MEC) is intended to achieve three objectives within Presence research:
- A comparative investigation of different methodologies (questionnaire, think-aloud, distraction-paradigm, eye-movement recording and functional magnetic resonance imaging [fMRI]) to measure Presence experiences on the basis of a psychologically elaborated theoretical model.
- Investigation of the role of Presence experiences in media-based learning processes with regard to educational hyper text and VR/multimedia systems.
- Illumination of the influence of users' motivational dispositions and skills on the development of Presence experiences.
