In our first networking meeting to be held in May, the following questions concerning humanities projects involved with crowd sourcing will be addressed:
* What are the objectives and/or research area of your project(s)?
* How many contributors are engaged in your project? Has this number changed over the course of the project?
* What does ‘engagement’ mean in that context?
* Do you offer incentives (e.g. a ranking system, prestige, recognition, material rewards etc) to your contributors? If not, what interests motivate them?
* What value has crowd sourcing bought to your content/project? Is this value measurable?
* What do you consider to be the main research outputs that crowd sourcing has enabled (or will enable)?
