Documenting Use Cases with H5P

There were several interesting H5P content types to choose from, but given the nature of the course I’m currently teaching (documenting and modelling system requirements), I choose to “experiment” with the Documentation Tool.

Within the context of systems analysis and design, students are required to document all of the details for specified use cases using a document template referred to as a “Fully Developed Use Case Description”. The format is similar to a form, with sections and fields to populate. I’ve traditionally used a word document with the sections populated and blank fields.

The H5P Documentation Tool was fairly easy to use in terms of adding pages, sections and fields to be populated. Moving the sections and fields within a page was very easy (albeit with lengthy scrolling); however it was not possible to move an element from one page to another. This comes into play if you want to reorganize the elements on additional pages after you have already created the elements on one page!

From the student perspective, the free navigation between pages and sections is very intuitive, and the interface is very clean. The only drawback to this tool is the limited input formats for students; all fields allow only “plain-text” responses. This is an issue for the Use Case assessment I built because one field should be in a two-column format. It would be useful to allow a more complex/html editor for the students input responses.
