Pursuing a broad range of learning objectives, effective physics laboratory courses need conducive-to-learning, motivating, and engaging experimental tasks. The Covid-19 pandemic has further increased the demand for quality experimental tasks which can also be used in online learning scenarios. The EU-funded DigiPhysLab-project meets this need by developing a set of 15 competence-centred experimental tasks which can be implemented by instructors effortlessly in their own lab courses, independent of whether they are held on-campus or in distance learning. For this, the project utilizes the broad availability of digital technologies like smartphones which allow an inexpensive data collection and analysis also outside a traditional laboratory. The developed tasks are characterized by a framework for design principles of experimental tasks derived from literature. In this conference proceedings, the general rationale and outline of the DigiPhysLab-project are described and exemplified by an experiment that is already developed, i.e., the Slamming Door experiment.
