WHAT IS THE PROBLEM THAT SLIDEWIKI SOLVES?
A major obstacle to increase the efficiency, effectiveness and quality of education in Europe is the lack of widely available, accessible, multilingual, timely, engaging and high-quality educational material (i.e. OpenCourseWare).
The creation of comprehensive OpenCourseWare (OCW) is tedious, time-consuming and expensive with the effect that often courseware employed by teachers, instructors and professors is incomplete, outdated, inaccessible to those with disabilities and dull.
Full courses, courseware, content modules, learning objects, collections and journals.
Tools: Software to support the development, use, re-use and delivery of learning content including searching and organization of content, content and learning management systems, content development tools, and on-line learning communities.
Implementation Resources: Intellectual property licenses to promote open publishing of materials, design principles of best practice, and localization of content.
WHAT ARE THE OBJECTIVES OF SLIDEWIKI?
Widely share (i.e. crowdsource) the effort of the creation and evolution of highly-structured remixable OCW !
