Maybe ‘crowdsourcing’ isn’t so new? – the victorians, the troubles in Northern Ireland.
Today we’ve seen a range of projects, covering many subject areas.
If we made a word cloud from today, the big ones would be: creating stories, curation, identity
How does JISC see crowdsourcing? We do lots of other stuff in terms of digital content as well – large scale digitisation. It should not be something different in the future – how can we work with all different types of users? It’s also about research and having a purpose.
Forthcoming JISC calls: (not ‘interest for the general public’)
- digitisation via OER
- large scale digitisation
- clustering digital content
