SlideWiki is a collaboration platform which enables communities to build, share and play online presentations. In addition to importing PowerPoint presentations, it supports authoring of interactive online slides using HTML and LateX. Slides and their containers (called Deck), are versioned thereby enabling change tracking. Users can create their own themes on top of existing themes or re-use other's themes.

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.

With SlideWiki we aim to make educational content dramatically more accessible, interactive, engaging and qualitative. More information about SlideWiki can be found in the documentation.
