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 there. I've been trying to use H5P instead of the core Moodle Quiz plugin, but I need to password protect access to the quiz and can't seem to figure out how to do that in H5P. How to download a Moodle quiz plugin compliant question set from the H5P question set plug in to use if the password cannot be set. I'm not looking forward to manually re-creating another 100 question quiz if I can help it. TIA

    Hi Corrine, password protection is only a feature for the Moodle Quiz plugin, it is not available for H5P. There are however other ways to limit access to content, the standard being putting it in a course or only making it available to a group, depending on your use case this may be a good alternative.

    Hi Michael, The plugin has a dependency to H5P Core, whose version is different than the plugin. Version 1.20 of the H5P plugin uses version 1.24 of H5P Core, so upgrading to the latest version (1.20.2) will allow you to use the newest content types.

    For a week, every time a student leaves a h5p content presentation mode without doing the complete tour, all the progress is lost and when he re-enters he is again on the first page.
    Could you help me?

    Hi Montse, I'm not sure what you mean about the "complete tour". Course Presentation only submits the results when the student visits the results page/final page. This is the way it is designed, so you'll have to instruct the students to visit this page if you want reports to be generated for them. If I've misunderstood please file a bug report on the forums:

    The translation in french is incomplete. Only the interactions involving the students are in french. When we switch from the french (Canada) to the french (France) all the activities in H5P become in french. Could you help us to be able to elaborate the H5P activities in french (Canada). Thank you.

    I have installed the plugin and everything works great.
    We would like to use the mobile app in offline mode. Sometimes our students have not access to internet. The offline mode of the h5p content using the plugin works if the student has started the activity and then lose its internet connection. If the student wants to start the activity in offline mode, the app just does not load and gives a message of "Webpage not available". Am I missing some configuration or the plugin has not this functionality?
    Thanks in advance and sorry for my English

    Hi, unfortunately content can not be started in offline mode, since it must fetch resources when it starts. The content has to be loaded with a connection first.

    Hello Gents,


    Just in case you get some odd support questions! With two H5P Moodle modules that only appear at first glance to differ by icon background colour.

    Kind regards,
