I have designed an experiment where children click different “clickable” buttons on a screen to make decisions. When they make a click it takes their avatar down a certain route and they need to make further decisions.
Because of Covid, I need to run this study online but it is also protocol that an experimenter is present for the session. Therefore, my approach is to share my screen with participants via Zoom, giving them access of my screen and they can click on the buttons as if they were in the lab.
This approach works perfectly if I am sharing to participants using laptops or desktops. However, it does not recognise “clicks” when they use a touchscreen device/phone. I have checked and my exp works okay locally with a touchscreen device (although I need to double tap to register a click). But when I am giving remote control to a touchscreen device over Zoom it does not seem to register clicks at all.
I don’t mind if participants have to double tap to make a decision but I just need it to register taps at all. Has anyone else encountered a similar issue or know what the problem might be? Apologies if this has been covered already!
Thanks in advance
