We're freed up to teach critical thinking

"Each year is collecting data from around 1,500 participants. And we're freed up to spend more time on data analysis"

We recruited 17,000 participants

"The experiment was picked up by BBC Radio 4 and spread through social media - at one point we had 17,000 participants"

We're transitioning our in-lab studies to Gorilla too

"I love Gorilla as experiment builder software so much that we're transitioning our in-lab studies to this too (leaving behind E-Prime, SuperLab and PsychoPy)"

Mixed Methods Research

Explore Gorilla's full range of academic research tools

Designed for the way your work unfolds

Gorilla gives labs, departments and research teams the power to address their research questions at scale

Easy Collaboration

Move your work forward quickly - with tools that make it easy to share your work for review, delegate experiment admin, and create shared libraries of pre-approved resources

Version Control

Explore new ideas with confidence, knowing your work saves automatically. You can't break it or lose your work. And you can make changes quickly - even after you've lanched your study

Code Editor

Want to add your own code without managing a whole server? Gorilla is a no-code experiment builder, but those who prefer the option can easily add scripts to extend the tools

I launched a study, went to lunch and came back to 400 participant responses

"Gorilla opens up a wide range of behavioural tasks including randomised trials and reaction time behaviour. It is easy to set up a task for participants to complete at home over the internet, so I can use it to collect useful behavioural data from participants across the UK. I launched a study recently, went to lunch and came back to 400 participant responses."

A Much Richer Learning Experience

"What we've managed to do with Gorilla is give students the tools and templates to make their own experiments, with minimal supervision. Students can go out and test a hypothesis via social media. Results flood in from all over the world, and they're creating this incredible range of studies. It's a much richer learning experience."
