Experience the life of a Worker on Mechanical Turk

What did you like?

-

Mturk.PNG

What did you dislike?

- My registration application was denied and I had to use Sandbox

- The website is not responsive, and the design is outdated. It looks like the site was made for low-class workers and professionals may hesitate to join.

- Buttons are not prominent, so it's a bit hard to identify.

- Pagination and sort by drop down areas are too small and hard to read.


What do you think can be improved about the system?

- The whole layout and design should be changed.

- The Registration process should be simplified.
