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

    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.

    Hi, I have the same problem with H5p questionnaire in a Moodle course. The user responses are not showing in the grading log.

    Video in H5P auto plays in Firefox 102.0 but not in Edge Version 103.0.5060.114 or Chrome. If we refresh the page the video is on, then we can play it by clicking on the play button. I have asked a similar question at h5p's site as well. the version of moodle 3.11 and h5p version 1.22.4. - is their paid support for h5p by chance? Thanks

    I'm not sure if the differences between this plugin and the integration in Moodle core (4.0+) might be. Perhaps this question has been raised in earlier posts but I suspect it will be a common one. Eventually I found two posts that address this question one. One in the Moodle forums - - and one in the HP5 forums - . Would it be helpful to provide the links to one or both of these discussions in this plugin's description above? Not much seems to be said post Moodle 4.0+ so perhaps these discussions are a little dated. Peace - Anthony

    I'm a little confused - how is this different from the H5P activities / plugins that are part of Moodle 4 core?

    Have installed this H5P plugin to two of my moodle sites. As an administrator working on a course, when adding a content type via this plugin I cannot save. Eg. Add an activity or resource > H5P Interactive Content > choose H5P content type > Get > Install > no use button appears, cannot save page. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this might be happening?

    Hi Reinier, we'll need some more information to help you. Please post your support request at and include whether this is a new install or an upgrade, how to reproduce the issue, what version of mod_hvp you use and any php errors from your logs.

    Interactive videos. I am looking into integrating a voice recognition exercise such as speak the words activity. I cannot find any information online regarding this. Is this even possible?

    I have an issue since upgrading to Moodle 4.1 with embedding H5P content in any html, the iframe gets resized automatically and the activity gets cut off. I have posted it on the Moodle forum here and on the H5P forum here I guess I should also post this issue on github? I use embedding of H5P a lot and now it's become unusable ...

    When I change the theme I get the following error:
    The course you passed to $PAGE->set_cm does not correspond to the $cm.
    I tried to find the solution online but it looks like this error is unfixable. is there another alternative to h5p or is there anyone who got the fix?
