Description/Abstract

Abstract—Behavioural interventions - packages of advice
and support for behaviour change - are one of the most
important methodologies and technologies employed by
social scientists for understanding and changing
behaviour. A typical web-based behavioural intervention
study includes the designing, deploying, piloting and
trialling of the intervention as well as data analysis. We
have developed a research environment named
LifeGuide, which covers the full scope of this process,
enabling social scientists to carry out intervention studies with minimal technical expertise. In this paper, we
present how the LifeGuide can assist and accelerate
intervention research, particularly focusing on
supporting the running and analysis of trials of webbased
behavioural interventions along with the case study
of an intervention that has been developed within the
LifeGuide.
