Why we share our crowdsourcing methodology

At Toloka Academy, we believe that working with the crowd is an essential skill. Our goal is to resolve the bottleneck that data constitutes today and thus spur dramatic innovation and progress both in research and in industry. We want to reach as many people as possible, which is why we are committed to empowering educators with our tools and methodology that’s based on years of research and unique industry expertise. We want teachers, tutors, professors, and lecturers to apply crowdsourcing in an academic context and teach this important skill to others.
Unique Crowd
Science expertise
Our methodology is based on 5 years of research and unique industry expertise. Our lecturers are experts in crowdsourcing, and they regularly participate in conferences around the globe sharing the knowledge that Toloka has accumulated over the years.
How we collaborate with faculty/universities
Tutorials
All our hands-on tutorials are based on unique industry experience. They offer an insight into crowdsourced data labeling and how it can be done efficiently. They also demonstrate how data labeling can be applied in various spheres – from ML and business to social science. Each tutorial gives you an opportunity to run a real-time project on Toloka.
Guest lecture
At Toloka, we have a bunch of crowdsourcing enthusiasts who are always happy to share some crowdsourcing tips and tricks. You can invite our speaker to give a lecture for your course, or we can organize an independent event.
