I’ve been wanting to learn how to develop interactive content for course design but didn’t have the time, money, or opportunity to learn the sophisticated elearning authorware. This week, I found out that H5P is fairly easy to use and can be integrated within our Moodle learning management system (LMS). Plus, it’s an open educational resource provided for free. It uses HTML5 to create content that’s displayed in existing publishing platforms.
I developed a drag-and-drop vocabulary activity to pair color-related Greek prefixes with medical terminology. This H5P learning activity is from the Question Set authoring template and includes multiple-choice, True/False, drag-and-drop, mark-the-words (select correct words from list), and fill-in-the-blank. See my first attempt authoring with H5P on their community site. It turned out larger than expected, so I need to figure out how to reduce it for smaller devices. You can download my vocabulary learning object for reuse on your website or LMS. Of note, this particular drag-and-drop activity reveals the answer before it should in that it highlights the box it goes into—hopefully, the developers will fix that.
This is the first of many more H5P projects I’ll develop, so join the community or bookmark my account if interested. I thought H5P was fairly easy to learn. Have you tried it yet? What have you made? Please share in the comments section.
P.S. I like using the accordion format to display course goals and student learning outcomes. At the unit level, I used the accordion format to display unit level objectives with the related SLOs revealed with a click.
