Have had a look around the wiki but can't find what I thought was there - a repository of slideshows folk had agreed to share. Have had this request from a lecturer at Oregon State University, which it is in project's interest to provide resources for:

"I am teaching an introductory map reading course this term and would like to introduce students to OSM. I am looking for introductory level Powerpoint-style slides about OSM ideas, concepts, architecture (database, rendering, tiles etc.) and how user contribute their own data (preferably by the example of the new iD editor). Do you know of any such freely available slides that I could use for lecturing one or two hours?"

Any links or offers gratefully received.

Can obviously point to these as well:
