Mechanical Turk (MTurk)
Mechanical Turk, aka MTurk, is a crowdsourcing tool, created by Amazon, that connects researchers ("requesters") with compensated research participants ("workers"). You might create a survey in Qualtrics and distribute the survey using MTurk. MTurk is not free and there is no UNT institutional subscription. You will be able to choose the amount of compensation that you provide to each "worker" who completes your survey + the total amount of responses required. The total amount of compensation + a fee to Amazon is due upon publication of your survey and is payable by credit card.
The video below covers how to create an MTurk account, import a Qualtrics survey, and distribute it using MTurk.
E-book. Conducting Online Research on Amazon Mechanical Turk® and Beyond, written by Leib Litman and Jonathan Robinson, provides both students and experienced researchers with essential information about the online platforms most often used for social science research.
