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. We've recently upgraded to Moodle 3.10.4 and we're experiencing a problem with version 1.22.2 of the H5P plugin: regardless of whether the setting 'Display action bar and frame' is selected in an H5P activity's settings, the 'Reuse/embed' bar at the bottom of the activity is always displayed - we normally uncheck this as we don't want it to be displayed for student-facing content. Please could you advise. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Richard, thanks for reporting this. It should be fixed in the latest version 1.22.3. Please report future issues in the repository though where it is easier to provide more information and follow up:

    The plugin appears disable and it doesn't allow me to enable it, I had a lot of content already create (they still appear in the library) but they are neither in the courses nor I can add from the activity list. I recently deleted the H5P black plugging. What can I do? I have create a lot of content I don't wanna lose them

    Hi Luis, What is the "H5P black plugging" that you deleted ? If you deleted this plugin you will have to reinstall it to be able to add it as an activity. If you are experiencing problems with the plugin please post to our forums at:, which is a better medium for following up support requests.

    Hi there
    Can any one help me to sort out the below issue

    The below h5p activity completion mail sending to one of the student automatically when ever a student complete an interactive video.

    I traced out the below from language string by comparing the email body

    No idea where this configured to remove the student name

    Hi {$a->username}, {$a->studentname} has completed '{$a->hvpname}' ({$a->hvpurl}) in course '{$a->coursename}'. You can review this attempt at {$a->hvpreporturl}.

    Any help in this regard is highly appreciated

    Thank you

    Interactive video question's answers are not saved once user log out before submitting the answers
    But once logged in the user can start from where he stopped and the interactive questions time line marks are showing filled which means answered

    But while the answer submitting screen appears the its showing 0/1 instead of 1/1 and the answers are not saved

    I am using the latest mod_hvp on moodle 3.10.6

    What happen if I install the h5p latest plugin on top of existing h5p plug in in my moodle.. will all the created content being erased?
  • Thu, Oct 7, 2021, 2:02 PM
    Hi Hemmy, Short answer: No. When you have installed the newer version of Moodle with the integrated new H5P module, you will have the option to convert all the old H5P activities to the new standard (and they will then be in the content bank). After that you can remove the old H5P module. Note that if you have many old H5P activities the conversion will be a resource-heavy process, so it should be undertaken when traffic on the server is low.

    Please be advised that H5P does not recommend using the Moodle Core integration of H5P. You should use the official plugin here instead. More info:

    I have entered an H5p questionnaire in a Moodle course, but user responses are not showing in the grading log. Is there a plugin problem?
  • Tue, Oct 19, 2021, 1:27 AM
    Hi Antonio, you will need an LRS to capture the answers from the H5P Questionnaire, or use
