Create interactive content with H5P

H5P (HTML5 Package) is a collection of HTML5 tools that allows for easy-to-use, engaging and responsive interaction creation.  Without the need for a development team or designers, anyone can create interactions such as:

  • Accordion content
  • Image Hotspots
  • Flip cards
  • Drag and drop interactions
  • Memory games

Content presentation tools include:

  • Virtual Tours
  • Branching Scenarios
  • Image sliders
  • Interactive video overlays for YouTube embeds

Adding interactive components to unit materials is an effective way to engage your user in a meaningful interaction. This interaction can help students to engage with the content and create deeper learning outcomes. The inclusion of these types of interactions can also contribute to students proactively seeking out and engaging with unit material on a more regular basis.

Your Centre for Teaching & Learning support team can suggest ways to incorporate HP5 into your teaching practice.
