Moodle 2.7, 2.8, 2.9, 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, 3.9

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 Uwe, sounds like a permission issue, if all the content types are available as an admin, but not as a "trainer". I'd suggest looking at the permission system, in particular "mod/hvp:addinstance" and "mod/hvp:userestrictedlibraries". If you think this is a bug please report it at with steps to reproduce the issue.

    @Thomas - thanks for the quick reply. Both permissions you mention were already set to "allow".... Bug - I'm not sure. If it was a real bug I'd expect other users to have the same problem?
    How about my somewhat desparate plan to reinstall the plugin - what would you think of it?

    Hi! I have a problem with the H5P Plugin. I can't access to any H5p content at all. I get a message "You do not have permission to view the content types." I am logged in as a administrator and using Moodle 3.10. Any hints!

    Hi Henning, like the error message says, you don't have permission to view the content types. You should check that your permissions are configured properly, in particular that you have mod/hvp:addinstance and mod/hvp:manage in the context that the request is made in.

    Hi Thomas! Thanks a lot for your answer! Unfortunately I am pretty new to Moodle. Can you explain me where and how exactly I can configure the permission properly and where I can find the "mod/hvp:addinstance" and "mod/hvp:manage"?

    The permission documentation for Moodle should be a good starting point: You can search for the specific permissions that you have in "check permissions".

    Got it! But the "mod/hvp:addinstance" and "mod/hvp:manage" doesn't show up at all!

    It would be interesting to have a type of interaction to be inserted at the end of a content, with the possibility of the student being able to assess whether it was satisfactory. The one with the stars would be really cool.

    Hi Everyone,
    Sorry if it's not the good place.
    I Have two issues with H5P on Moodle:
    - In interactive books, the scores, results and answers of my students are not saved, I can't see what they have done or not
    - In virtual tour, I select the autoplay for audio in a scene, but it doesn't work
    How can I fix that?
    Thanks in advance for your answers

    Hi Sébastien,
    1) interactive books should work with the reporting, students must press the "Submit Report" button on the summary screen, and observe that they get a "Your answers are submitted for review!" message to ensure that their answer is recorded. If this does not work check that you have the latest version of the H5P plugin and the latest version of the Interactive Book conten type.
    2) please post bug reports or support requests in the forums:

    Dear developers, good day.
    Please help me understand the results, or rather their absence.
    Part of the video was viewed, the answers to the questions were partially sent, and the result was not recorded in the report.

    I hope you can help me to resolve a very particular problem that I have when I use the H5P plugin: if I create a new activity HVP in the "Editor" section, I select the content "Fill in the blanks", and then, the section "Global feedback" doesn't show the form that should do. If I debug my browser I obtain this error: "TypeError: Cannot read property 'name' of undefined". Also, something very similar happens if I select "Interactive video", because sometimes also shows "TypeError: tour.destroy is not a function".
    I use Moodle version 3.5 and 3.10, and before the upgrade of these complements, everything worked ok, so I think it should be a problem regarding to this process.

    Hi Jose, what is "Global feedback" and why should that show ? It is not part of the standard editor form as far as I can see. I'm not able to reproduce the issues you're describing using mod_hvp 2020080400 and Moodle 3.10.2+ (Build: 20210312). Please report bug or support requests at following the guidelines there, including steps to reproduce the issue.
