Qwiki Public Alpha

Sharing here an email I received from the Qwiki Team:

Qwiki Public Alpha – New Features 

Hello there!

In case you haven’t noticed yet – due to the incredible demand, we’ve opened the Qwiki alpha to all users, with several new features:

“Improve This Qwiki”
Users are invited to submit pictures and videos relevant to any Qwiki, augmenting our content in places it’s incomplete. You’re also encouraged to report any mispronounced words, and vote on the speed of the voice. Easy ways to make Qwiki better!

The Qwiki experience is no longer married to Qwiki.com. Now, you can embed Qwikis on any third party site. Just click the “Embed This” button from Qwiki’s “end screen” (you can skip to the end of each Qwiki by clicking the “Q+” button in the nav bar).

Qwikis can now be shared via Facebook, Twitter, and Email, via our new short code qwi.ki.

More details on the most recent features can be found here.

The public alpha will allow us to collect even more feedback and improve Qwiki’s first corpus, covering 3 million people, places and things. More to come…

Much love,
– The Qwiki Family
