Respondent and Proxy Survey for Remote Telepresence
 
SURVEY QUESTIONS FOR RESPONDENT
This survey asks people questions about who they would pick for their proxy if they could choose a proxy of their choice for our study on remote telepresence in classrooms. The study explores how Google Glass can be used to support remote viewing and participation. In a nutshell, a “proxy” or “surrogate” attends a class on behalf of a student and streams the class to the student remotely via Google Glass.
