Turner, P., McGregor, I., Turner, S. & Carroll, F. (2003). Evaluating soundscapes as a means of creating a sense of place
We report an empirical study into the creation of, and
response to, a soundscape of a computer centre. We contrast
the use of presence questionnaires, as means of assessing th...

We argue that a conceptual framework is required to support the
practical evaluation of collaborative virtual environments. We propose
such a framework based on an extended, t...
