What is H5P or interactivity in Moodle?
H5P is an abbreviation for HTML5 Package. It allows educators to create engaging and dynamic content for students’ online learning.
It allows the creation of a multitude of elements in such a way that training is amusing thanks to the interactivity it offers. Its objective, therefore, is to facilitate the creation, participation and reuse of interactive content.
Focusing on our main area of work, Moodle experts, we point out that for this elearning platform there is a bank of H5P content that you can work with and customise according to the needs of the course or the learner. Adding H5P activities to your Moodle or creating customised content.
Since Moodle 3.9 it is easier to embed H5P objects into content created in Moodle itself, which is an advantage over previous versions. Moreover, the activities are directly connected to the Moodle grades, so that almost nothing needs to be configured.
