Experience the life of a Worker on Mechanical Turk
Sign up as a worker for Mechanical Turk here. Then, practice doing some tasks - you should do enough tasks to earn $1.
If having difficulty signing up as a worker, you can try the worker sandbox, or other sites like CrowdFlower or Microworkers. Your peers will post some worker sandbox HITs at Milestone 1 Sandbox HITs.
Reflect on your experience as a worker on Mechanical Turk. What did you like? What did you dislike? Write it up on this wiki, as described here
