Abstract

Prior CSCW research has paid little attention to training for crowdsourcing project participants, which can require more than simple instructions. We examined the design of tutorials on the Zooniverse citizen science platform and identified aspects of tutorial design that aligned with task types, including more use of images and rich media for certain tasks. These findings support developing new tools for online tutorial creation, such as standard templates based on task characteristics.
