Presentations have become indispensable in our everyday lives, whether at school, in college or at work. 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.
