Welcome participants!

Hello, I’m Jeremiah Crowley and I am running the study “Learn Guitar From Zero To Hero”. I wanted to give you some details about the study. If you feel like it is something you can do, you will join the Facebook Group linked at the end of this page. This group is for the participants of this study. 

About Me: 
I have been teaching guitar full time for over 25 years and I am also the creator of Guitar Now Online. The research study you are participating in will help me complete a Masters in Educational Technology and Instructional Design. 

What you will do in the study:
You will be linked to my e-learning module “Learn the Guitar: From Zero to Hero”. 

There are 16 video guitar lessons, 2 quizzes, 1 reflection and 1 final assessment. The final assessment is a video that you will submit playing 3-chords using a strumming pattern. *Your face does not need to be in the video. 
Additionally, there will be a short pre-post questionnaire. 

You will complete the lessons, quizzes, reflection, final assessment and questionnaire.

How much time will it take and when is it due by?
My estimation  is this will take 1-2 hours to complete depending on how you do with the guitar. 
We will launch this month (unsure about exact times but will keep you informed via facebook). You will have 1-week to submit the final recording. 

What do I need to participate?
An electric or acoustic guitar. 
A device that is connected to the internet. 
A way to record yourself. 
Join a Facebook Group. 
Submit a recording via Dropbox.

Compensation
Research participants will be paid $100.00 once all items are completed. 
All items: 16 lessons watched, 2 quizzes completed, 1 reflection completed, 1 final recording completed and pre-post assessment completed. 
You will also receive 1 free year to Guitar Now Online if you want to continue. Annual memberships are $100/year. Free for 1-year for you. 

How you will be paid. 
Once participants have submitted the video, a message will be sent that the work is completed. I will review within 48-hours and will electronically send you the $100.00. This can be through Venmo or Paypal. 

What happens if you don’t finish everything, or finish in time? 
Only participants who complete every step and turn in the recording will be compensated. 
Only participants who complete within the alotted time will be compensated. 

What if I don’t do well on the quizzes or final recording?
There is no consequence of the outcome on compensation. This study is about the module itself and it’s effectiveness. If the study is completed, you will be compensated regardless of how well you did or didn’t do. 

That’s it!…for now. I’m  sure there will be more info as we get closer to launch. I’ll update everyone on the FB page.
