Comments on H5P

“A great design resource with re-useable/adaptable code & widgets to create rich, interactive HTML5 content.” Keith Quinn, Digital Learning Consultant, Scotland, 2022

“We use Moodle at my college and it’s native activities and tool often feel flat and bland. H5P has proven an excellent tool for designing more dynamic learning exercises, though the design effort is often disproportionate to the amount of time students actually engage with it, which is why we are somewhat dubious of it’s utility.” Lee Lewis, Senior Digital Learning Coordinator, UK, 2021

“A simple selection of interactions that are relatively easy to use and deploy.” Digital Learning Developer, UK, 2021

“With H5P you can create great interactive content for almost any website. With native plugins for Moodle, WordPress, and Drupal H5P is very useful.” Course Creator, USA, 2019

“Fantastic tool to create active learning experiences, I use it to create interactive videos and other interactions for blended learning or online courses. The interactivity helps to keep the students engaged.” Instructional Designer, Canada, 2019

“Stylish outputs, easy to use, helpful walkthroughs, useful advice on accessibility” Learning Technologist, UK

“Great tool for online courses etc.” Teacher Trainer, Finland, 2019

Quick Guide to H5P 

Here you will find some basic guidance and links to resources on how to use H5P for teaching, training, learning and development.

H5P is used to create rich interactive content. H5P enables existing CMSs and LMSs to create richer content. With H5P, authors may create and edit interactive videos, presentations, games, advertisements and more. Content may be imported and exported. All that is needed to view or edit H5P content is a web browser. H5P content types and applications are shared here on H5P.org. H5P content may be created on any H5P enabled web site like H5P.com or your own Drupal or WordPress site with the H5P plugin installed.

H5P.com is service for those who want to use H5P without having to set up and maintain their own website or hosting solution for H5P. H5P.com also provides integrations for LMSs like Canvas, Brightspace, Blackboard, Moodle and other systems that support the LTI standard. In addition H5P has plugins for WordPress, Moodle, Drupal and several other publishing systems.

Here is a video that provides an introduction to H5P

Interactive content is clearly very useful for online learning
