The term crowdsourcing was first devised by Jeff Howe in 2006 in Wired magazine. At its simplest the term crowdsourcing refers to the delegation of a task to a community of people rather than relying on a single individual or team within an organisation to complete the task. HE, FE and Skills and the cultural heritage communities have been using this collaborative model for supporting the development and enhancement of online digitised collections.
Jisc Digital Media is pleased to announce a webinar focusing on crowdsourcing. The webinar will provide attendees with the opportunity to hear from two current crowdsourcing projects – the Museum of London and the Bentham Archive from University College London – as well as hearing from Mia Ridge, a PhD researcher from the Open University who has undertaken extensive research in this area.
What will be covered
Topics covered will include:
- An introduction to the topic of crowdsourcing for metadata,
- A consideration of the benefits and challenges of crowdsourcing
- Identifying methods and tools of introducing crowdsourcing into your digital project
There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and the session will provide signposting to further reading and support.
Register for this free event. We look forward to welcoming you to the session.
