From the JISC website:
Crowdsourcing is the term used when this problem is broadcast to a wide audience or community that could solve the problem collectively. Mundane tasks could be outsourced to a motivated and enthusiastic community of experts. The community can assess the answers and provide the quality assurance. Wikipedia is probably the best example of crowdsourcing on the web at present.
