H5P – interactive elearning tool with HTML5 and Javascript

H5PRecently I received an email from MoodleNews and it had an article about H5P. The opening line for the article was:

H5P is an interactive content standard. Based on JavaScript and HTML5, it is perhaps the best contender to replace Flash once and for all. Plus, it’s open source. But the best way to do it justice is by letting you see it in action.

This grabbed my attention and started doing a little digging. I’d not heard of H5P or what it could be used for. I did learn it’s open source, so there’s one tick in the box. It can link into an LRS, another tick. I don’t know how long H5P have been around, but what I’m discovering is fantastic and opens up new opportunities for building interactive elearning tools and formative assessments.

What else do you do but create an account with H5P at https://h5p.org/

WOW! What you can do with their interactive tool is nothing short of awesome! After a very quick play, and I mean I had been logged in for less than 5 minutes, I came up with the interaction below, based on the 5 Technology Challenges Faced By Adult Learners. There are so many interactions you can do that this is just the start.

So what are you waiting for? go have a look and see what you can come up with!
