Crowdsourcing is a method of collecting services, ideas, materials or other artefacts from a relatively large and open group of people. Crowdsourcing has been used in computer science education to alleviate the teachers' workload in creating course content, and as a learning and revision method for students through its use in educational systems. Tools that utilize crowdsourcing can act as a great way for students to further familiarize themselves with the course concepts, all while creating

In my research, I focus on investigating the effects of computing education systems that use crowdsoucing on students' learning, and the types of quality assurance methods required to use the artefacts students produce with these tools.
