Media portal celebrates one millionth download
As the year draws to a close, the media portal has every reason to celebrate: downloads have now passed the one million mark.
The diversity of themes and media is a driving factor in the portal’s popularity: nearly 200 of the more than 4,000 teaching materials have already been downloaded more than a thousand times. The growing interest in renewable energies has also been reflected in how the media portal is used, with energy-themed media topping the download rankings. The number one download was the schematic diagram entitled “Energy sources for electrical power,” which illustrates how different forms of energy can be harnessed for human use. Other user favorites include the materials focusing on light and hearing.
The free online platform supports educational professionals and volunteers alike with ready-to-use instructional media such as content packages for interactive whiteboards, preconfigured media packages on specific topics, experiments with step-by-step instructions, and worksheets. The media portal’s core German content is complemented by many English and Spanish media, with an emphasis on science and technology.
The media portal team thanks all its loyal users and looks forward to welcoming new visitors!
