Strong in education - vocational digital media for German-speaking classrooms that are using Microsoft Teams

Thanks to the new EUROPATHEK-App for Microsoft Teams, digital media of the internationally well known publishing house Verlag Europa-Lehrmittel can be used directly within Teams channels, tabs and chats. With more than 1.000 educational books, media packages and other teaching and learning materials for vocational training and further education, our digital library offers a great variety of content:

  • digital books
  • premium-editions enriched with multimedia
  • media-packages
  • animations and simulations
  • e-learning units

All this can now be used with our app for Microsoft Teams online. Students and teachers don't have to switch between their learning environnement Microsoft Teams and our EUROPATHEK with a clear focus on the topics to be studied. Thanks to the feature "share contents/pages", links can easily be generated for others.

Learning levels, bookmarks, personal annotations and notes as well as the most recent book pages are synchronized online. In combination with one's personal login (name, email and password are required), all of our media is available where nowadays vocational education takes place.

How we built it

Our team of digital media enthusiasts got in touch with several teachers from vocational schools that are already using Microsoft Teams as their favorite learning environnement, especially during these times of the pandemic. Together, we wrote use cases for our minimum viable product and built this very first version of our app to connect the existing platform with Microsoft Teams.

What's next for EUROPATHEK | macht Wissen mobil

Currently, we are working on a Single Sign-On in order to fully integrate our platform and Microsoft Teams.
