Alexander delivered a hands-on workshop in this event as part of the SlideWiki project’s initiative in developing a collaborative open courseware authoring platform and collecting feedback from the online education community. This workshop offered the opportunity to participants to get acquainted with the newly launched SlideWiki platform and its functionalities for collaborative authoring of open courseware, crowdsourced translation of educational content, as well as social networking. The workshop was well attended and offered opportunities for discussions not only about the SlideWiki platform, but also about the future of open educational resources and open education.
