   Citizen Science for the Digital Humanities


- Taught by experts from Google and Zooniverse (Oxford’s Citizen
Science platform).

- How to plan your crowdsourcing all the way from project
conception to launch to data analysis.

- In-depth experience of all stages of Zooniverse's new DIY
crowdsourcing site from developing and launching a beta site
through to using data refinement and analysis tools to understand
the results.

- Come with your own project ideas and set of images to work from
to get practical experience in building a project with a dataset
that you understand.

- Opportunity to pitch your project, generate interest in it,
attract a crowd from amongst Summer School delegates, and get
them to respond to it. There will be time to reflect on the
process of setting up and sustaining a crowdsourcing project.
