All the base knowledge we assume at the start of this workshop can be learnt from this 15 minute video
This shows you how to make the ‘posnerHand’ demo available from previous examples
Open the posnerHand.psyexp file. An experiment in Builder has:
Open the conditions.xlsx file…
If you are going to change something on every repeat of a routine (e.g. stimulus location changes on each trial) you can use a Conditions file. This is fed into the loop surrounding the routine.
Each header is a parameter, each row corresponds to the value of that parameter on each repeat/trial.
As a general styling tip, we suggest to keep the number of routines to a minimum. Got several sets of instructions? use a loop!
First, let’s practice making edits to make sure we are comfortable with builder view.
So now we have a very simple experiment that works locally, let’s see how we would get that online.
This is where the globe symbols come in, which represet online functionality.
To get our study online, we check that we are signed into our pavlovia acount. Then we ‘sync’ our project. As we create the project we have the options to:
To view your study online, log into pavlovia.org, you will see your experiment under Dashboard > Experiments.
Let’s get some data!

OK we have now seen the basics of running a study online. Let’s talk about some other aspects of the pavlovia environment…
