About SlideWiki

SlideWiki aims to exploit the wisdom, creativity and productivity of the crowd for the creation of qualitative, rich, engaging educational content. With SlideWiki users can create and collaborate on slides, diagrams, assessments and arrange this content in richly-structured course presentations.

SlideWiki empowers communities of educators to author, share and re-use sophisticated educational content in a truly collaborative way. Existing presentations can be imported and transformed into interactive courses using HTML and LaTeX. All content in SlideWiki is versioned thereby allowing users to revise, adapt and re-mix all content. Self-test questions can be attached to each individual slide and are aggregated on the presentation level into comprehensive self-assessment tests. Users can create their own presentation themes. Slidewiki supports the semi-automatic translation of courses in more than 50 languages, allowing synchronization of the content between the languages.

With SlideWiki we aim to make educational content dramatically more accessible, interactive, engaging and qualitative.

Slidewiki is an open-source platform, and all its content can be reused under CC-BY license. SlideWiki development, large-scale trials and underlying reseach is funded from Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 under grant agreement no 688095.
