The lack of high-quality educational resources is a key issue on the way to success of the Open Course Ware movement. However, the state-of-art approaches of producing such content demand a lot of resources, thus limiting the percent of such courses in a total amount of content available. An important step towards decreasing costs while increasing the quality of the educational material is applying collaborative techniques to the production process. Such collaboration affects different aspects of Open Course Ware production, such as: content annotation, personalization, sharing and other. In the current paper we aim to investigate the state-of-art of the collaborative authoring of Open- Course Ware in all its aspects, finding out the major gaps and the most promising approaches to fulfill them. Based on the study results we developed Slide wiki - an example application for the Open Course Ware collaborative authoring that implements the most promising solutions for the gaps found.
