In the ICT overlap area of the Thematic Clusters Future and Emerging Technologies and Societal Challenges of the European Union Horizon 2020 research funding program, crowd sourcing and MOOCs are seen as important to achieve an open and inclusive society.

An open and inclusive society is not possible without open source, crowd-sourcing, open e-learning like MOOCs and inclusive innovation.

Inclusive innovation requires a field of actors, processes and technologies beyond what we currently associate with innovation, including intermediaries and end-user groups in lower and very low income groups.

Interaction between all these players will run over the common denominator technology platforms i.c. being mobile and wireless intelligent devices and supporting networks and thus be almost certainly intelligent dashboard driven.

intelligent dashboards almost inevitably require use of linked data, big data and semantic web technologies.

So yes,  you may have just hit upon a fleid of research worth pursuing,

Dear Paul-Olivier, all,

I'm not exactly sure, what you have in mind, but maybe our SlideWiki.org
initiative is related:

With the open-courseware authoring platform SlideWiki.org, we aim to
facilitate the collaborative creation of hightly structured
multi-lingual courseware (consiting of slides organized in reusable
decks, self-assessment questions, figures etc.) which could be used to
create MOOCs. See http://slidewiki.org/documentation/

We use SlideWiki for a number of courses, e.g. a lecture series on
Semantic Web topics:


BTW: We are currently running the SlideWiki OpenCourseWare Summer
(SOS2014) Competition, which will award good Open Course Ware projects
on SlideWiki:
