Abi James (University of Southampton) explained how using the SlideWiki platform has enabled the re-purposing of open content, originally created for MOOCs, so that it can be used in different learning settings. Moreover, Abi explained how the slide format has helped with blending online and classroom teaching while also enhancing MOOCs. In addition, Klaas Andries de Graaf (VU University of Amsterdam) demonstrated the new features of the SlideWiki platform that allow educators and learners to collaborate and re-purpose materials. Last but not least, the SlideWiki OpenCourseWare competition was presented and the questions of the attendees were answered.

The SlideWiki project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 688095, started in 2016 with 17 partners from Europe and Brazil using the award-winning open-source SlideWiki platform as a basis and aiming at creating a large-scale accessible learning and teaching platform using educational technology, skill recognition and global collaboration. On the SlideWiki platform, presentations, especially open teaching and learning materials, i.e. open educational resources, can be jointly created, edited, updated, changed and accessed. Moreover, SlideWiki is an OpenCourseWare platform for sharing slide decks according to the FAIR data principles.
