This talk will centre on the findings of a recent Moodle project undertaken between VerveEd and BAE Systems Australia. The project involved the creation of an aviation related, maths and physics Moodle course which learners could use in a self-directed capacity. Development of the course shed light on a number of instructional design and technical challenges, which talk attendees who work with the latest web technologies, will find valuable to learn from. Attendees of this talk will learn from the following talking points:

• The technical and pedagogical challenges of using key HTML5 web technologies in conjunction with H5P and Moodle core functionality.
• How the combination of Google’s and Moodle’s UI frameworks can compliment each other to create feature rich course templates which dynamically load H5P content.
• Ways to load H5P content on a course homepage to avoid nested navigation issues.
• Why the flexibility/usability tradeoff’ design principle needs consideration when creating courses that avoid vendor lock-in.
• How the backup/restore features of Moodle helps to update some course resources but how other resources need workarounds.
• When Moodle courses utilising additional web technologies require special development measures to work offline or in deployed circumstances.
