MoodleCloud, AFAIK, is the standard/default distro of modules in Moodle; no extra bells and whistles. Wouldn't H5P need to be accepted and supported as part of the standard distro to be on MoodleCloud or are there other considerations?
Rather than being yet another summative assessment tool, which H5P can be used for, I see it as more of a replacement for other presentation formats, e.g. Flash and multimedia slideshows, which often include in-line quizzes and games in an attempt to improve students' recall of the content. I don't consider any of the modules in the standard Moodle distro as serving that function particularly well (e.g. Quiz and Lesson modules) and this is where H5P excels.
I think the main usability issue with the H5P Moodle module, i.e. authoring content, still needs to be resolved. At the moment, users have to use another platform to author content rather than doing it all in Moodle. This replicates the editing problems with using SCORM packages.
It'll be interesting to see where this goes.
You are right about MoodleCloud being an almost stock delivery of Moodle core but H5P now has editing technology right there in the Moodle plugin, which is rather impressive. For me it has the advantage over SCORM of not being SCORM . I think it would be possible to link from a MoodleCloud account using LTI to a site with H5P.
Moodle HQ have done a hack so that moodledata/filedir can be stored in the cloud, rather than in a local filesystem.
However, for reasons I don't understand, they have not shared that code with the community. Well, they tried to share part of it in MDL-46375, but mixed up the useful changes with a lot of irrelevant class renaming, and so the integrators rejected it (rightly IMHO). Since then nothing has happened
I'd love to have it available there,
I saw the comments on H5P is quite dates. Is the H5P plugin available for Moodle cloud yet? I have used a range of different tools i.e quizzes and so forth but I like what H5P can do with those.
If this is available could someone tell me how I get it onto my Moodle? I have checked the plugin and I cannot see any H5P on there.
The H5P (version 1.7 2018012200) plugin is installed by default in the free (Moodle 3.3.5) sites available at gnomio.com !
From https://www.gnomio.com/ plugins description:
"For security reasons you are not allowed to install your own themes and
plugins nor have access to the database or the filesystem but feel free

If it is of general interest and well maintained we will install it
for all users.
WARNING: In your site you can find many some additional Moodle plugins, but most of them are initially disabled. If you decide to activate and use any of them you must understand that these plugins are not official components maintained by Moodle.org. The developers could abandon them at any time.
After an update you may discover that an unofficial plugin is no longer available or it does not work properly.
You can distinguish which are the unofficial plugins by looking at

In my free site there it showed:
I would love more the free Moodle Cloud hosting if it had more freely available additional plugins !
Thanks for your reply. So just to check I have H5P plugin already in my
moodle cloud sight?
