H5P in Moodle – should you use plugin, or not?

An important statement from the H5P team about the Moodle 3.9 plugin.

An important announcement for Moodle users from the H5P team. From [https://h5p.org/moodle-plugin-vs-moodle-core-vs-h5p-com]

In this post I am referring to the original post, made by H5P project lead Svein-Tore (aka Falcon) on Fri, 07/31/2020 – 09:08.

In a following post shortly I will dissect these options in more detail…

Comparison of the three options:

  • The H5P Plugin (recommended)
    • Includes the full version of H5P including the H5P Hub, making it compatible with the OER Hub and future versions of H5P.
    • Maintained by the H5P Core Team.
    • Available as a plugin on Moodle.org, allowing for self-hosting and managing of the H5P content.
  • H5P.com (recommended)
    • The best version of H5P delivered as a service; hosted and supported by the H5P Core Team, integrates via LTI.
    • Will soon include premium features allowing for a better authoring experience and several unique H5P dimensions that need special server side technologies to work.
    • Includes the full version of H5P including the H5P Hub, making it compatible with the OER Hub and future versions of H5P.
    • This is a paid service, so if you use H5P.com you also help fund the development of H5P.
  • The Moodle core integration
    • Partial integration of H5P as an optional feature in Moodle core, developed and maintained by Moodle HQ.
    • Offers a tighter integration with Moodle and the Moodle Mobile App.
    • We currently do not know if and when a full integration of H5P will be in place.
