About SlideWiki

SlideWiki is an online slideshow tool that offers users the chance to create and collaborate on slides, assessments and to share content as structured open educational resources using a Creative Commons licence. With SlideWiki you can engage with your audience by collaborating with colleagues to co-design and co-create course materials and share your knowledge across the world.

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. Slides can be supplements with comments, links to sources and materials as well as questions to help learners.

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