It's about time: Online Macrotask Sequencing in Expert Crowdsourcing [article]

Heinz Schmitz, Ioanna Lykourentzou
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Our work is the first to address the problem of optimal task sequencing for online, heterogeneous, time-constrained macrotasks.  ...  Expert crowdsourcing involves macrotasks, like document writing, product design, or web development, which take more time than typical binary microtasks, require expert skills, assume varying degrees of  ...  We address in our work the problem of optimal task sequencing for online, heterogeneous, time-constrained, macrotasks.  ...

2017 Proceedings of the ACM on Human-Computer Interaction  
This paper explores this question through in-depth case studies of 22 workers across six workflow-based crowd teams, each pursuing a complex and interdependent web development goal.  ...  Our results indicate that workflows served as useful coordination artifacts, but in many cases critically inhibited crowd workers from pursuing realtime adaptations to their work plans.  ...  This work was supported by the National Science Foundation (award IIS-1351131), DARPA, the Stanford Cyber Initiative, the Stanford Institute for Research in the Social Sciences, and a Stanford Interdisciplinary  ...

Making digital history: The impact of digitality on public participation and scholarly practices in historical research

Mia Ridge
Following this, Chapter 3 explores the ways in which some crowdsourcing projects encourage deeper engagement with history or science, and the role of communities of practice in citizen history.  ...  Chapter 1 provides an overview of over 400 digital history projects aimed at engaging the public or collecting, creating or enhancing records about historical materials for scholarly and general audiences  ...  It also found that microtasks took more time combined than the equivalent macrotask.  ...
