Session II - SlideWiki: Revolutionizing crowdsourcing, authoring, sharing and re-using of OER and OCW online
Presentations have become indispensable in our everyday lives, whether at school, in college or at work. On the SlideWiki platform, presentations, especially open teaching and learning materials, i.e. Open Educational Resources (OER), can be jointly created, edited, updated, changed and accessed. Unlike other OER repositories, SlideWiki is designed to ensure the reuse, mixing, and repurpose of OER material and slides, and to help educators gain access to new course materials. Moreover 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.
You are free to share your experience in this domain as well as the difficulties you have faced or are currently facing in terms of bringing your software product to market. Moreover you can pitch your software products, concepts for a software product or research outcomes that could have the potential to be offered as software products.
Please bring your notebook, for the testing of the SlideWiki platform, its tools and features.
