On January 18-19, the kick-off meeting of the SlideWiki project took place in Sankt Augustin, Germany hosted by the project ccordinator Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems. KMi and the Open University were represented by Alexander Mikroyannidis.

SlideWiki is a new Horizon 2020 project, aiming at increasing the efficiency, effectiveness and quality of education in Europe via widely available, accessible, multilingual, timely, engaging and high-quality educational material (i.e. OpenCourseWare). In this large-scale trial project, we will further mature the SlideWiki technology platform (available at, integrate it with a state-of-the-art MOOC delivery platform and perform four large-scale trials in:

  • secondary education,
  • vocational and professional training,
  • higher education and
  • community-driven open-education.
The Open University is a key partner in this project, as it is leading two work packages: the integration of SlideWiki with multiple educational platforms, such as Learning Management Systems, and the coordination of large-scale pilots with informal learners via Open Educational Resources (OERs) and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
