Heuristic Evaluation of Crowdsourcing Platforms
Sign up at ECSCW


Masterclass during the ECSCW in Sheffield (UK), Tuesday 29th August 2017 from 13:00 till 16:00 (lunch beforehand included).


A presentation by the instructors to explain all the (sub)heuristics for crowdsourcing platforms using relevant examples.

Evaluation session

Participants will evaluate a crowdsourcing platform to their choice in duo's, using heuristics cards as a guidance.


Findings of the evaluations session will be shared in short presentations.


Community Design Guidelines for Crowdsourcing platforms devided into 6 main categories. Within the masterclass, we dive into the subheuristics.


We will present the rationale and process we followed to define the community heuristics. The presentation is planned to take around 45 minutes. Next participants will be handed a deck of cards that we have developed to make the activity of evaluating a crowdsourcing platform easier and more engaging. Participants will choose cards and perform an evaluation of a crowdsourcing platform of their choice. Next participants will share their findings. Finally, we will plan a re-design group activity based on the prior findings. The maximum number of participants we can support is 20.
