H5P - Create, share and reuse interactive content for innovative eLearning solutions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

H5P is a free and open source content collaboration framework for creating, sharing and reusing eLearning interactions. H5P is short for HTML5 Content Packages. H5P integrates seamlessly and allows content to move freely between systems like Moodle, Canvas, Blackboard, Brightspace and WordPress. The authoring is done in a user-friendly tool with a moderate learning curve and content is automatically accessible on any web connected device. There are 27 different content types for building interactive content and growing. In my presentation, I will show my top 3 H5P content types; Interactive Video, Course Presentation and the Document Tool to demonstrate the depth and breadth of this technology. The Interactive Video, allows the author to embed videos and then have quizzes or text responses overlayed at any chosen time in the video. The Course Presentation content type is like PowerPoint but on steroids! It lays out content in a slideshow style format and is the most diverse tool offering around 16 different types of interactions and content. The Document Tool is an easy to create assessment documents for goal driven activities. It can be used as a form wizard to document learning such as in projects, job cards/tasks and any student generated content. All these content types capture students’ interactions and input directly into the Gradebook in Moodle and other LMSs. I will also mention some upcoming content types and features H5P is working on. H5P is now providing its software as a service which is a fully hosting service for those who want to use H5P for a fee without having to set up and maintain their own website or hosting solution for H5P. I will look at how this works from a vendor’s perspective and how it functions with LTI. In this part, I will focus on the power of learner analytics in H5P.com and how students’ interactive data is collected and presented for teachers.
