Crowdsourcing é uma abordagem que utiliza o conhecimento das pessoas para resolver problemas. Existem diferentes tipos de crowdsourcing, um deles é conhecido como micro-tarefas, que são pequenas tarefas difíceis de serem resolvidas pelo computador, mas facilmente solucionadas pelas pessoas. No entanto, manter a motivação dos participantes é um desafio para o crowdsourcing. Para abordar esse desafio, a gamificação tem sido considerada uma abordagem promissora. Neste artigo, analisamos o impacto da gamificação na motivação das pessoas e os resultados mostraram um aumento na quantidade de micro-tarefas realizadas, após implementar técnicas de gamificação em um aplicativo móvel e realizar estudos com oito voluntários.
