Here you will experiment with H5P as a way to add interactive web elements to almost learning content hosted in WordPress or LMS platforms such as Canvas, Moodle, or Blackboard (these may require a plugin), or any other web site where you can add custom HTML code.

The name comes from the elements you create with it being published as HTML5, which can be played back in a web browser or mobile device without any special plugins.

If going through Ontario Extend you may have actually encountered two areas where these were used; you may not have even noticed that these were embedded web applications.

You can explore the wide range of content types available that can be built with H5P– take some time to see what they can do.

Here are some demo examples for the Agamatto content type which allows you to create a slider to transition between images, to show layers of meaning, multiple representations… maybe you can think of something to do with this?

If you are interested in trying this yourself see the H5P content author guide. Then you can start building your first app and host them for free on the H5P site, create a free account and start building in their Test Drive area (this is how we built the ones you see in the module). You may notice that when creating there, you have options to allow downloading, and it also includes a place to provide attribution for media used.

Use H5P to create an interactive activity for your class to review for a test or assess prior knowledge about a topic.

  • H5P for lesson content review
    by Kim Wilmink (@KWilmink)

    I decided to create a quick 3 questions knowledge check for students to complete after reading the lesson on the Hotel registration process.  I find that H5P is really easy to use and I am looking forward to using some of the different types of learning objects.

  • Sponsorship for Event Planning
    by Kim Ball (@Kim)

    As part of my event planning course, we cover the chapter on sponsorship. I often prepare written notes for the students with fill in the blanks to follow along, yet, not spend all their time frantically writing. This allows for more participation in discussion and understanding of the principles being discussed

  • Exploring H5P branching activities
    by Elan Paulson (@Elan Paulson)

    It’s too early for me to be designing H5P objects for my upcoming course workshops next year, so right now I am just experimenting and exploring with the tools that seem the most useful for my practice. I decided to look at the beta tool, branching scenarios, which seems like a very useful tool for more… »

    by Martina Kolodzey (@Tiniko)

    Making questions is one of the hardest things for newcomers learning English.  One of the first things we teach them first and is the basis of what is to follow, is how to make yes/no questions with the verb to be.  These are the easiest.  This H5P can be used as a review or possibly more… »
