Lookit templates

How to use

These templates contain frames such as initial instructions or setting up video that can be used for any study. They do not contain any actual trials.

To use these templates, go to the main page for the template on Lookit (linked under each tab below) and click "Clone Study" in the menu on the right. Be sure to do this so you aren't editing the original template!

Then, on your copy of the study, click "Edit Study" in the menu on the right. Scroll down to find the protocol generator section, and click on it to begin editing.

You'll see that frames and frame_sequence contain JSON, just like in the regular protocol configuration.

Another option is to make a copy of the .js file of the protocol generator on Github (also linked below). You can work in that file, create a new study on Lookit, and paste your code into the protocol generator section.

For more information on protocol generators and examples of how they can be used, see the Lookit documentation.
