- There are many Hits available to work on.

- Platform is popular

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- The website is not responsive, and the design is outdated.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.

- Should minimize the post backs

What did you dislike?

- Overall layout and the design. It seems outdated.

- Creating a new project is a bit tricky and process is hard to understand


Also attach the CSV file generated when you download the HIT results.

Explore alternative crowd-labor markets

Compare and contrast the crowd-labor market you just explored (TaskRabbit/oDesk/GalaxyZoo) to Mechanical Turk.

Readings

What do you like about the system / what are its strengths?

- The bottom layer of workers can work with the system

- They have built the system to support low-end phones. So, people don't have to invest much in equipment.

- People can work from anywhere anytime. Which is a massive plus point?


What do you think can be improved about the system?

- The system should have multiple language support. Because, most of the low-level workers have limited knowledge in internal languages and they can only handle their mother tongue.
