Crowdsourced Document Annotation: Using your vertical crowd.

Tags: ,

This project for the 2011 UT School of Information Spring Showcase event explores the application of modern design patterns to crowdsourced document annotation. I combine game elements with improved aesthetics and interaction to encourage a publisher’s existing audience to work for them in exchange for publisher-specific rewards.

I’ve done very limited user testing of the system, so it currently serves as more of a demonstration than proof of these concepts. A modified version of this prototype is being readied for internal use at a publication. I’ll post more details and some measure of success or failure once it has seen some use.
