Abstract

Crowdsourcing is increasingly used in the search for new solutions to a problem, which takes advantage of the collective intelligence of the community. The practice of crowdsourcing has been used in different sectors such as health, marketing, and education, among others. An emphasis is made on higher education because it allows one to take advantage of the knowledge of many people through virtual platforms, especially also for the use of crowdfunding of higher education institutions in Peru. The objective of this chapter is to identify the benefits that crowdsourcing could bring to higher education in Peru. The methodology employed was a literature review on crowdsourcing and education in Latin America with an emphasis on Peru. The results of the finding were that crowdsourcing allows automatic or personalized learning, creates questions for specific exams or class materials, and generates collaborative learning. However, in the Peruvian higher education sector there is a scarce presence of this methodology due to the lack of promotion in the institutions and the challenges that exist when applying it.
