Back to Reality: The Challenges and Joys of Conducting User Research in VR 


When international passengers exited their planes in Christchurch, New Zealand, they needed to get through customs, but it wasn’t clear where they were supposed to go. People were getting in the wrong lines.

Yvonne Tse was part of the team brought in to conduct user research to fix the problem. Yvonne and her team used Virtual Reality (VR) to create an immersive airport experience for their testing participants. They used VR to examine the human experiences of using physical space. They were able to test signage, wayfinding, navigation, and layout without physically having to change the space, which saved a lot of time and money.

What You’ll Learn

  • Examine the benefits of using VR
  • Overcome the challenges that come with using VR
  • Map your space effectively to get the most out of VR testing
  • Explore the limitations of VR

Join us if you’d like to learn more about using VR for user research. Yvonne will walk you through her experience using VR in an airport project and she will share her expertise for getting the most out of VR while dealing with the challenges VR presents.


Pizza will be provided (Thanks to our host TEKsystems!) The webinar will start promptly at 6:00 PM, preceded by a half hour for socializing, networking, and food. 


We are able to offer this webinar at no cost. Come at 5:30 to meet your fellow Triangle UXPA peers and talk shop!
