Assignments

Students must complete weekly readings and participate in discussions. Each student will do a series of assignments to gain familiarity with crowdsourcing from a worker and a requester perspective. As part of teams,
students will design and prototype a final project. 

As a rough time allocation, students each week should dedicate 2 hours for reading papers, 2 hours for homework and projects. Devote additional time for the final project (to help balance work load, we will provide lots of time for in-class work sessions).

  • Be a boss (due week 3)

    • Pitches due week 5
    • Prototypes due week 6 and 7
