‘Crowdsourcing’ is the idea of getting a large number of people to contribute ideas or predictions in order to improve decision-making. Along with techniques such as publishing documents online for public comment, and providing more conventional online suggestion boxes and feedback forums, these offer great potential to increase the quantity and quality of feedback you receive and open up feedback to audiences who wouldn’t have the time or inclination to participate in other ways.
