For the online learning world


E-learning app of the month – H5P

H5P is open-source and free, and makes it easy to create, share and reuse HTML5 content in Moodle.H5P allows anyone to create rich and interactive web experiences quite efficiently – all you need is a web browser to produce the content.


One of the great benefits of using H5P is that it gives you access to lots of different interactive content types.  You can create presentations, games, interactive questions, and many different visually appealing types of content.  Think of it as a trimmed down version of SCORM maybe, based around set templates?

Another great benefit of H5P is that it allows you to easily share and reuse content. To reuse content, you just download the H5P you would like to edit and make your changes – e.g. translate to a new language or adjust it to a new situation.

As you would expect, Moodle has an H5P plugin that administrators can install, so you can seamlessly embed the H5P created content in your courses: https://moodle.org/plugins/mod_hvp

Definitely worth a look !
