Moodle: Activities & Resources: H5P Interactive Content

H5P icon



H5P makes it easy to create, share, and reuse HTML5 content and applications. Content is responsive and mobile friendly, which means that users will experience the same rich, interactive content on computers, smartphones and tablets alike. With H5P, instructors can create and edit interactive videos, presentations, games, and more. 


As you begin thinking about using these interactive activities, keep the following in mind:

  • While the application and activity is accessible, make sure that the content you add is also accessible.
  • Some activities allow for points (grades) and are added to the grade book. If you do not want the activity to be graded, you can set the maximum points or weight to zero, and then hide it in the grade book.
