The topic of digitisation has been an important one to schools and universities in Germany for some time now. This year, however, the coronavirus pandemic meant that the topic had to be implemented as quickly and effectively as possible. Digital teaching presents us all with great challenges but offers great opportunities as well. Making teaching appealing and interactive is easier than ever with digital educational materials – and that is precisely why we depend so much on high-quality and freely available material. It is precisely this purpose that Open Educational Resources (OER) are intended for.
