You can create or modify your own Open Educational Resources if you cannot find resources that meet your needs. The question of producing Open Educational Resources (OER) has a strong overlap with the production of digital teaching and learning materials in general. The crucial difference is that OER must meet specific requirements in the areas of technical, legal and didactic re-usability. Within the framework of the Hamburg Open Online University, so-called “toolchains” have been and are being developed that describe the process of creating digital materials from the user's perspective.

A "Toolchain" in this context is a sequence of tools, software and methods used to create OER and other digital teaching and learning materials. These toolchains provide support for different aspects of material creation, including technical implementation, legal considerations and didactic design.

1. Technical implementation: Technical implementation refers to the selection and use of software and tools to create the OER. This may include the creation of text documents, videos, interactive applications or other digital content. The choice of the right tools and platforms can influence the quality and re-usability of the materials.

2. Legal aspects: With OER, clarification of licensing and copyright issues is crucial. The materials must be licensed so that others can freely use, edit and redistribute them. This requires a clear knowledge of the Creative Commons licences and other relevant legal aspects.

3 Didactic design: Didactic design concerns the pedagogical conception and structure of the materials. It is important to ensure that the materials support the learning objectives, are engagingly designed and promote effective learning processes.
