Crowdsourcing has emerged as a valuable solution to help businesses complete projects, both simple and complex. But managing a crowd of individuals requires a unique set of complex, multi-motivation systems to keep them engaged and properly directed. Crowd Mechanics use gamification principles to provide an incentive and engagement system designed to drive outcomes in a crowd through individual and group incentives that include both monetary and non-monetary rewards, levels, and achievements. In this hands-on session, Niel Robertson will discuss the principles and best practices of Crowd Mechanics. We will discuss the dynamics involved with motivating and managing a crowdsourcing marketplace with thousands of workers and teach you how to implement Crowd Mechanics and reputation systems to keep your crowd from becoming a mob.
