H5P is a good alternative to Flash-based and SCORM-based content, which makes the process of both creating and maintaining rich, interactive content much quicker and easier. This is especially important as support for Flash is coming to end and web content which relies on this technology will no longer work.
Who can use it?
H5P Interactive Activities can be made within Moodle by anyone who is enrolled as a Course Administrator, Leader or Tutor on a course. The created activity can then be viewed by anyone who has access to the course page, unless restrictions are added to control who can access it.
What are the different activity types I can add using H5P?
AR Scavenger - Create augmented reality experiences
Personality Quiz - Create a series of multiple choice questions where each answer option corresponds to a predefined category (personality)
Quiz (Question Set) - Create a sequence of various question types
Single Choice Set - Create questions with one correct answer
Summary - Create tasks with a list of statements
Timeline - Create a timeline of events with multimedia
True/False Question - Create True/False questions
Virtual Tour (360) - Create interactive environments using images, audio and navigation between scenes
Why are some activities not available?
Some activities within the H5P plugin have been disabled to avoid large media files being uploaded or because the activity is not related to teaching and learning at UCL. To see a list of activities which have been turned off, please see H5P activities held.
If you believe a particular activity should be enabled and would benefit your teaching please contact the Digital Education team.
How do I use H5P within Moodle?
To use H5P within your Moodle course, switch Edit mode on, locate an appropriate section, click Add an activity or resource, then select Interactive Content (H5P).
Enter a Description (which you can display if you wish).
Within the Editor, select the H5P activity type you'd like to use and create your interactive activity.
If required, select Restrict access and set up any required activity restrictions.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save and display.
H5P activities within Moodle don't store any data in the Gradebook so you won't be able to use them for summative assessment. However, you could add your own Grade Item by going to Grades > Gradebook setup and then manually entering a grade.
