Allen Day posted a tight summary of how best to approach designing work for paid crowdworkers. His outline is excellent. Listed here are the 8 Keys he identifies as fundamental to success.
- Be Consistent
- Use Variables
- Batch Tasks
- Be Visual
- Use Flow Charts
- Know what you want. Be Unambiguous
- Improve through Iteration
- Build Validators into your Tasks
It’s an outline in common sense, and like most business advice, not obvious until you actually see it. Read the paragraph that goes with each item and save yourself from the first part of the paid crowdsourcing learning curve.
