In view of the school closures a major German public television station, ZDF, created a new channel which has been designed to offer educational material especially in short, well-researched and professional presentations. This channel is called “Terra X plus Schule”. There are also more extensive documentaries available, but especially the short presentations are very helpful not only for pupils to learn at home of for for teachers to incorporate them into their (online) lectures, but also for pupils who learn German as foreign language. The features available cover subjects from nature and animal science to history and archaeology. The good thing: at the moment it seems, that the material is available without the often used country restriction which would limit the use to internet connection within Germany only.
