Tutorial: Using HIT Builder to Make an HIT

HIT Builder is ready to be used by you. For fun, profit, and freedom from busy work.

Here's how.
  1. Visit the mTurk Requester Site, register using the same email as you use with mTurk. (So that any money that you have in that account, can be used to pay people)
  2. If you don't have any money in your Amazon Account, go to "Your Account" then click "Transfer money to your Amazon account". Follow It's Instruction.
  3. Create an AWS account, after confirming it log in using the provided link in the confirmation email to get your Secret ID and Access KeyID.
  4. Create an HIT-Builder Account
  5. Login to HIT Builder in IE, or in the IE Tab Extension for Firefox.
  6. Click on the "First time building a HIT? -- Click here to try our Wizard Interface" link.
  7. The wizard is very helpful, there's no need for any instruction but to read what it tells you.
  8. After posting, watch mTurk for your HIT(s) to show up. Then wait an excitement for them to be returned.
I sort of just threw this together, I will revise it later. In the meantime, if you need any help with posting HIT's to mTurk using HIT Builder please email me cracell AT gmail DOT com, or IM me aim:Crancell, Msn: cracell AT gmail DOT com. And this will tell me what I need to make clearer in the tutorial.

As well you can get support from HIT-Builder here.
