SlideWiki Poster & Demo: Our poster/demo paper “SlideWiki — A Platform for Authoring FAIR Educational Content” by Ali Khalili and Klaas A. de Graaf of the VU University Amsterdam was accepted and will be presented at the SEMANTiCS2018 Poster/Demo Track

Info about the SlideWiki project: 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.
