What is H5P?

H5P is an open-source, community-driven system for creating rich and interactive multimedia for elearning. Thousands of universities, enterprises, school districts, governments, and other organizations use H5P to deliver interactive learning experiences.

H5P empowers instructors to create richer and better experiences by adding gamification, interactivity, and rich multimedia to an online course. It can take your online teaching to the next level, and it is suitable for both professionals and newcomer course creators. It makes creating rich educational content easy without the need for complicated and expensive authoring tools.

Using both H5P and LearnWorlds’ interactive video & ebook authoring, you can create a unique and engaging e-course, that will keep your students coming back for more!

In this article, we will learn how to create interactive learning content using H5P.

Interactive Activities using H5P

Comprehension activities are necessary for an online course, and they can also be used to assess learning outcomes. Any activity with feedback is a potential assessment and can be used to reinforce knowledge.

What matters most is that the assessment:

  • Is relevant to the objectives and goals of your course.
  • Is appropriate for the level and scope of your course content.

Make sure that you vary your mix of comprehension activities so that you:

  • Test competency, not only memory.
  • Make sure that your activities help your students develop a sense of confidence.
  • Let learners do it whenever they want to. If learners may have prior learning in the topic, let them prove it and ‘test out’ if they’re competent.

Such activities could be quizzes, written assignments, or exams. For more interactive comprehension and assessment activities, H5P offers interesting activities you can create, such as: Drag the words, Timeline, Flashcards, Drag and drop, Image pairing, Fill in the blanks, Mark the words, Summary Statements, Dictation, Dialog cards, Accordion, Image slider, Guess the answer, Image juxtaposition, Memory games, and more!
