To be able to cope with the growing student numbers, there is an increased need to evaluate, develop, and implement online teaching scenarios, such as blended or flipped classroom formats. One of the biggest challenges in online education is the generation of tailor-made, engaging teaching material. This refresh teaching will discuss content development strategies and present examples for interactive, web-based teaching material, such as videos, interactive scripts, tutorials, and Moodle-based activities. The discussion will revolve around pros and cons of these approaches and how they can be dealt with as well as how the presented strategies can be translated into other disciplines.
