Launcher Window Collect Ratings Review Ratings

Important Update
Given the impending shutdown of CodePlex, I have migrated this project to GitHub. All updates for the next few months will be hosted on both sites, but please start visiting the new website at http://darma.jmgirard.com.

Project Description
DARMA allows users to play multimedia files while collecting continuous ratings in a two-dimensional (e.g., circumplex) space using a computer joystick.

Purpose
DARMA is a media annotation program that collects continuous ratings while displaying audio and video files. It is designed to be highly user-friendly and easily customizable. DARMA enables researchers and study participants to provide moment-by-moment ratings of multimedia files using a computer joystick. The rating scale can be configured on a number of parameters including its labels and numerical range. Annotations can be displayed alongside the multimedia file and saved for easy import into statistical analysis software. DARMA provides a tool for researchers in affective computing, human-computer interaction, and the social sciences who need to capture the unfolding of subjective experience and observable behavior over time.

History
DARMA was first published by Jeffrey Girard in 2014 under the GNU General Public License version 3 (GPUv3). Users are free to use, distribute, and modify the program as outlined in the license. DARMA is meant to be a modernization of Sadler's JoyMon and Cowie's FeelTRACE, and was first adapted from Girard's CARMA. A journal publication describing DARMA and its use thus far is planned for 2016.
