Information about the H2020 SlideWiki project (Grant Agreement No 688095) Given that presentations have become indispensable in our everyday lives, whether at school, in college or at work, the SlideWiki platform, which is the main focus of the SlideWiki project, provides an open-source online platform for collaboratively creating and sharing Open Educational Resources (OER) in the form of presentation slides. Unlike other OER repositories, the SlideWiki platform is designed to ensure the reuse, mixing and repurposing of OER material and slides, and to help educators gain access to new course materials. SlideWiki combines an online slide creation and presentation tool with a number of interactive features such as comments, ratings and self-test questions. All content published on SlideWiki is made available under the CC-BY-SA 4.0 Open Creative Commons license, which means that the content can be shared, modified, translated and reused, enabling thus efficient collaboration. In addition, the open-source SlideWiki platform minimizes the effort of creating, translating and developing structured teaching and learning material through crowdsourcing. Similar to Wikipedia for encyclopedic content, SlideWiki enables the collaborative creation of comprehensive OpenCourseWare (OCW) with the objective to semiautomatically translate this content into more than 50 different languages, improving the quality of translations, and supporting the engagement and social networking of educators and learners.
