This week we're going to focus on what it is like to be a participant in online studies. First, we're going to do a bit of work online ourselves to get a sense of the type of tasks people have available and how your experiment might compare. Second, we will talk about the communities that online workers have developed to exchange information about tasks and people requesting work. Finally, we'll dive into the ethics of online experientation including labor rates, issues of fairness, and possible legal issues involved in work-for-hire.
