Today we will discuss the ups and downs of online data collection for science. In addition, we'll take the first step towards running online experiments by creating and account with Amazon Web Services. We'll use this to access Mechanical Turk, but also this gives you access to a range of cloud-based computing tools. We'll also get set up with github, which is a code management/version control system with many useful social features. Finally, I'll show a quick and dirty way to collect data online using Google Forms.
Do online experiments replicate what is found in the lab? Are online workers different than the undergraduate subject pool? How naive to experimental manipulations are online workers?
Simple stuff: Creating a simple web-enabled survey using Google Forms.
