Abstract

LIONESS Lab is a free web-based platform for interactive online experiments. It provides solutions for the methodological challenges of interactive online experimentation, including ways to reduce waiting time, form groups on-the-fly and deal with participant dropout. The intuitive, user-friendly graphical interface enables researchers to develop, test and share experiments online, with minimal need for programming experience. We highlight key features of the software and show how it meets the challenges of conducting interactive experiments online.
