Crowdsourcing for READ-IT

READ-IT is an interdisciplinary project that investigates the evidence about reading in Europe from the 18th century until today. In collaboration with social scientists and researchers from the digital humanities we developed innovative crowdsourcing applications for gathering information on reading experiences.

The crowdsourcing application follows a task-based approach using questions and answers where researchers decide which questions to post in each crowdsourcing campaign. Campaigns can run in parallel for many target groups demographics and as long as it is required to gather the desired amount of data. The crowdsourced data can be a text entries, documents, photos and even videos that users submit as part of their answers. We have developed a number of multi-language user-interfaces for the crowdsourcing campaigns including one re-assembling a physical postcard.
