How Gamification Drives Crowdsourcing
Tools

When Seth Priebatsch, CEO at SCVNGR, delivered his audaciously provocative presentation at TED he was talking about how to motivate the crowd when money isn’t the currency. You can call the approach of rewarding certain online behaviors (or penalizing others) 'Gamification', 'Game Mechanics', or 'Social Rewards', all are being equally banded about and are receiving lots of buzz. Whatever you call it, it’s all about the motivation of the masses...we’ll call it Gamification.

The options for presenting a range of digital incentives and rewards is theoretically infinite but the primary design elements include motivational triggers such as: positive (and possibly immediate) feedback (e.g. a sound that quickly becomes recognizable upon the successful completion of a task); noticeable advancement through the “game” upon successfully performing the work (e.g. progression to a new level); awarding points, badges, and status levels, etc. (see Gowalla, GetGlue or Foursquare).

Gamification however can be about much more than just driving online engagement by awarding users tokens that represent their various levels of achievement – some refer to this type of consumer engagement as 'Pouring Chocolate on Broccoli' (a very Germanic expression meaning to simply spice something up that is a bit boring). Used in this manner, the greater potential of using Gamification is somewhat lost.

Crowdfunding for a Cause: Ten Cases of Philanthropic Crowdfunding
Crowdfunding

With crowdfunding becoming an ever more popular way to raise start up costs for businesses and projects all over the world, Crowdsourcing.org decided to take a look at ten cases where crowdfunding has been put to a benevolent use.

The rise in the number of people online — not just in the developed world, but in poorer countries too — is transforming the world into a truly “global village.” As a result, those who have internet access have more opportunities than ever. Perhaps the most fitting example to kick off our look at philanthropic instances of crowdfunding is
AHumanRight.org, a non-government organization whose mission is to ensure “global access to information as a human right.” The charitable group employed the crowdfunding method in an attempt to buy the high capacity communications satellite Terrestar 1 from its bankrupt owners. AHumanRight.org planned to provide internet access to some of the poorest people on the planet, free of charge.
