This was a fascinating session on a relatively new topic of crowdsourcing. The full potential and power of web2.0 technology and networking is being harnessed in people seeking start up funds for an idea that they have.
Dan Donahoo led us through a discussion on how crowdfunding works and his views on its adaption to learning and education. Dan expertly walked us through some of the projects that are looking for start up funds. A great illustration is A Really Big Road Trip . It was able to get more than requested through Pozible – Creative Crowdfunding site. It bought Australia a Geek Arts Bus!
