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

    Thanks @Thomas, well actually I copied a link to a video on our Mediasite I tried to inserted into H5P when creating an interactive Video, but it didn't work out

    This is the direct link to the video on Mediasite :

    Hi Mario, that is not a direct link to the video, a direct link would be something that ends in .mp4 for instance. This link is a page where they have their own video player embedded and the video is sourced from a binary blob, so it can not be reused in other contexts. I suggest reaching out to mediasite and ask if they can provide you with a direct link to the video, you'll know that it is a direct link by the extension and that it will use the browser's default video player.

    Hi all, I am using Moodle 3.8 and trying to install H5P 1.20.1 but whenever i try to install h5p 1.20.1 on moodle 3.8, the site always crashes. I even tried to install it from the zipped version of the h5p 1.20.1 plugin, but same error. Can anyone provide me a solution for this ? Thanks.

    Hi Pankaj,
    1. If you won't get answers here, maybe you should ask in Moodle Forums. There is even a new dedicated "H5P" forum there:

    2. The first thing I would do that in your situation is to enable debugging, and see if you get an error that would give you some clues, or at least something that you could paste when asking your question, and maybe would help others to understand what's the issue with your system.

    When installing or upgrading the plugin, one message (info) is hardcoded to english. I'm PT-PT translator.
    Line 50 of install.php and line 274 of upgrade.php
    "H5P fetches content types directly from the H5P Hub. In order to do this the H5P plugin will communicate with the Hub once a day to fetch information about new and updated content types. It will send in anonymous data to the Hub about H5P usage. Read more at the plugin communication page at"
    Thanks for the plugin.

    Dear Plugin developers,
    it´s great to have the opportunity to integrate the h5p interactions in moodle! Thanks a lot.
    I´ve one little comment: from the perspective of a student the icon of the moodle activity is cryptic, as they mostly do not know h5p. Would it be possible to use an icon, that stands for interactive content? Maybe something like a mouse pointer.
    Best and thanks again

    Hi, when will the new version be published?
    I cannot use the Presentation Format because of 1.20.x

    Hi Andrey, what do you mean by "Presentation Format" ? If you mean Course Presentation, then it is available with the latest version 1.20.1 of the plugin. If you need support please visit the forum: or the h5p forum for Moodle:

    Hi, are there any know comparability issues with installing the h5p plugin in Moodle 3.8, with the ongoing h5p native integration in moodle 3.8 i.e. will this cause issues down the line or will happily exist next to each other?

    Hi George, to my knowledge there are no known compatibility issues, they will happily exist next to each other. The H5P integration in Moodle core will provide a tighter integration with the Moodle ecosystem.
