Crowdsourcing ideas from stakeholders and constituents is more interactive and drives social participation through submitting ideas, voting and commenting. It is more transparent and community driven, and allows users to be flexible in their level of engagement. It is also value-driven in that concrete results are achieved.
Crowdsourcing and hosting online dialogues promote the public’s input on key policy issues related to the employment of people with disabilities. Government agencies benefit tapping into a diverse group of people who bring unique skills, talents, and knowledge to the task at hand. It is also easier, cheaper, faster, more flexible and accessible than traditional input tactics such as in-person interviews and intensive studies. Crowdsourcing encourages interaction among users and expands the reach to groups who may otherwise be inaccessible. Lastly, it provides valuable quantitative and qualitative data.
