I’m Sai Mikkilineni, and I’m a doctoral student here at the University of Alabama. Along with my professor, Dr. Andrew Billings, we’re attempting to study how the COVID pandemic has affected fans of traditional sports and eSports to change their media consumption. As such, we request your participation in this research study, which will take about 15-mins of your time. Your participation is greatly appreciated and would enable researchers, like us, to determine how societal issues can affect individuals’ use of media. To participate in this study, you must satisfy this criterion:
You must be at least 18-years old. Reside in the United States. Fall in at least one of these scenarios, Never watched eSports before the pandemic but watched for the first time during the pandemic. Watched eSports before the pandemic but consumed significantly more during the pandemic. eSports watching before, during, and after the pandemic remained the same.
If you are aware of any individuals who satisfy our criteria, please forward our study to them.
