What is it?
H5P is an abbreviation for HTML5 Package. H5P aims to make it easy for anyone to create interactive content such as presentations, videos and other multimedia, questions, quizzes, games and more without the need of programming skills. It is integrated with Moodle, so you can create and share your content easily on the platform.
Below is a short interactive video created with H5P to provide you with a brief introduction to the resource.
The above activity was created using H5P "Course Presentation".
How do I create H5P content?
You can create your H5P content in the Content Bank of your Moodle unit. Do not create the content in the Content Bank of the Moodle Homepage or you will not be able to find the resource when you are in your Moodle unit.
For the 21/22 Academic Year we will be able to support the six following H5P content types:
There are other H5P content types available in Moodle and you may find some of the content types not listed on this page beneficial to your activity.
Watch this short video [3 mins 23 secs] which demonstrates how to create H5P content in Moodle:
Moodle can timeout after a certain period of inactivity so we recommend saving your work regularly to avoid losing the H5P content you are creating.
How do I add or embed an H5P resource into my Moodle page?
Once you have created an H5P resource you can then share it by adding it as a stand-alone activity or embedding it as a resource to your Moodle page.
You will want to add H5P as a stand-alone activity if you would like the activity to appear in the grade book, if you would like to view the students' attempts and/or if you would like to see the responses students provided. However, we do not recommend using H5P for summative assessments as you cannot limit the number of attempts students can take on an activity.

You can also add H5P content by embedding it. Content can be embedded in resources such as a Label or a Page. Embedded content will not be able to track students' progress or interaction with the package.
