Tips on working with the Media Portal

In addition to the about 3,200 OER for STEM lessons, the Media Portal offers useful functions that can support you in networked teaching and learning with your students and their parents. Have a look to the most important ones here.

Digital materials under open license (OER) help a lot to support each other and to encourage the exchange between us: they may be modified, augmented with your own content, and shared. It’s legal, worry-free, and easy. Our quality-checked OER for STEM lessons are interdisciplinary, for all types of schools and grade levels, ranging from detailed texts and short videos, to experiments and interactive formats, to complete packages on various topics. They’re available for teaching and self-learning.

But the Media Portal can do even more to support you now:

Communicate easily with your class and their parents

Create personal bookmark lists where you collect the individual media files of your choice. You can share them with other teachers, students, or parents easily and conveniently at the click of a button. You can add and remove individual media files, add a descriptive text, and also limit the availability to any time period you select. Go to the instructions

Look for the blotch: Self-learning media for your class

The self-learning offering follows a multimedia, diverse approach. Within the media and topic packages for teachers, appropriate materials are identified with the “student’s blotch” and can be forwarded directly to your students.

Experiments, puzzles, tests, educational games, and explanatory videos are found in a separate student's area – let the pupils explore this area independently or conduct experiments with their parents.

Find suitable content quickly and easily

Which media lend themselves to your work with your class at this special situation? Teacher instructions and detailed guidelines provide an overview of the individual media and possible usage scenarios. This enables you to quickly decide which worksheet is currently particularly suitable.
