Introduction

Want to develop interactive quizzes, presentations, and mini games on your subject? How about an image with clickable hotspots with additional contextual information for learners, or a video which pauses to ask for a response from the viewer before proceeding? Or a branching scenario where a learner can make a decision and see what the outcome will be?

H5P is a tool for authoring interactive HTML5 content which can be embedded in a variety of LMS platforms or directly into webpages. It offers several tools for making content more memorable, engaging and meaningful for students.

At the moment, H5P content isn’t mobile responsive and doesn’t integrate directly with Aula, but it may be the right solution for teachers using other platforms or their own WordPress site (via www.coventry.domains, for example).
