So called “Wissensbausteine” (knowledge elements) provides content on the topics field of work, consulting/mentoring, teaching/learning, interaction, methods, media, and diagnosis. Furthermore, there is teaching material for the preparation, implementation and analysis of educational events

All content on this portal is released under cc-by-sa 3.0 de. The portal provides general information about OER, as well as practical instructions and checklists, which enables other people to produce OER.
