Open Educational Resources (OER) allow for free access to educational materials and increase the chances of educational equity. We developed the DataPLANT OER, a teaching material resource based on the concept of annotated bricks along didactic paths. Our concept builds on a leveled approach with the brick, unit and dissemination level, is environment-agnostic and can be implemented in any desired technical framework. It balances customization and reuse and aims at one OER to teach them all.
