Do you know what eye tracking is but think it sounds complicated? Welcome to this course where you can learn from experienced researchers and make mistakes in a safe environment, before you start your own eye tracking project.
An eye tracker is a tool that measures where someone looks and how the eyes move. The technology is heavily used in fields such as psychology, neurology and human-computer interaction, but is also commonly used in more applied areas such as human factors research and marketing. While being an extremely powerful tool to probe human visual behavior, there are many practical and methodological skills one must acquire to use eye tracking effectively. More information can be found at the course homepage.
The course is open to everyone who wants to learn more about eye tracking methodology and how to practically work with eye trackers. While no background knowledge is required, the course contains enough possibilities to explore deep technical and methodological questions to benefit also the advanced user. It is recommended to come to the course with a specific research project in mind to maximize benefit from the course.
Marcus Nyström is a researcher and dedicated teacher who has been working with eye tracking and eye movement research since 2003. His research spans over several fields and is almost always highly interdisciplinary.
