One of the great benefits with using H5P is that it gives you access to lots of different interactive content types.

Another great benefit with H5P is that it allows you to easily share and reuse content. To reuse content, you just download the H5P you would like to edit and make your changes – e.g. translate to a new language or adjust it to a new situation.

H5P is:

  • Open Source
  • Free to Use
  • HTML5
  • Responsive

Note that it is currently possible for people with programming skills to cheat in H5P interactions and obtain the full score without knowing the correct answers. H5Ps must not be used for exams or similar.

The H5P community is actively contributing to improve H5P. Updates and new features are continuously made available on the community portal

    Does somebody know why it keeps "Loading" when I want to create a new interactive video?
    After minutes I doesn't work and I have to check settings to see if it works and loads the tool for creting an interactive video.
    I'd appreciate your help with this issue.

    Do you plan a release for Moodle 4.0 ?
    if so, when will it be published?
    Thank you

    Hi, just to reiterate the questions about Moodle 4.0. I really don't like the Moodle Core H5P implementation.

    Hi Matt and Eric, we are currently testing the integration with Moodle 4, we will let you know when we have finished testing the integration and fixed any issues we find.

    We are currently using this plugin in Moodle 3.8, if we upgrade to Moodle 4 that already have built in h5p feature, does our data reflects automatically on Moodle 4 or we have to use both H5P plugin and built in h5p feature in parallels?

    Hi, the format for .h5p content is the same for the H5P plugin and the Moodle Core integration of the plugin, but they don't share the same data source, they will store the H5P content in different places. If you upgrade to Moodle 4 you can continue to use the plugin, it has been tested with Moodle 4. You can also use the H5P plugin and the Moodle integration in parallells, but if you need to transfer content between the systems you will have to download from one system and upload to the other or build some migration script for it.
