Consider the module structure like Vendor/Module/Component - according to the hierarchy you should place component in your item name="source".In your case it would be the following:

<item name="source" xsi:type="string">homeslider</item>
  • I am new to magento . Would you don't mind please explain what is the component ? ...

  • Yourcompaname/Yourmodulename/(here any folder you made for you module is component ). If we talk about the cms module then , it will be Magento/Cms/Page ... in this case page is component.
