Crowdsourcing OER: What is SlideWiki and why you should use it

The SlideWiki platform, the main output of the SlideWiki project, offers an open-source, online platform for creating and sharing Open Educational Resources (OER) in the form of slide decks. Unlike other OER repositories, SlideWiki is built to ensure the smooth reuse, remix and repurpose of OER slides and decks and to help educators access new course materials. SlideWiki combines an online slide creation and presentation tool with a range of interactive features to help engage your audience, such as comments, ratings and questions. All the content published on SlideWiki is made available under the Creative Common CC-BY-SA 4.0 licence which means that you can share, repurpose and reuse content.

Built to comply with accessibility standards and to support assistive technology users, SlideWiki enhances significantly the collaboration, knowledge exchange and educational progress by enabling users to:

  • Import existing slide decks from PowerPoint and OpenOffice formats
  • Use the online, collaborative WYSIWYG slide authoring
  • View a slideshow on any device including mobile, tablet, Smart TV
  • Export content in a number of formats, including PDF, SCORM and ePub3
  • Download presentations in PDF, ePub and HTML formats
  • Track content’s history and changes
  • Use tags and groups to collate content for a course.
  • Use a Presentation Room for the slideshow’s broadcast
  • Track all changes to slides within SlideWiki, enabling the monitoring of who has created the materials and the collaboration with co-authors.
  • Use or adapt source code (and in most cases the code of the third party libraries used) to install your own version of SlideWiki for your organisation or on your website.
