H5P: A Next-Generation Tool for Creating Interactive Activities.” 03/31/2017
From Rachael Harris
This presentation will explore H5P, a new, free, open-source authoring platform that offers around 30 activity types to help you create interactive and mobile-friendly activities. These activities include course presentations, interactive videos, drag and drop, timelines and personality quizzes. H5P allows the creation and use of rich HTML5 content in existing publishing platforms (https://h5p.org). Shannon will present examples of many of the activity types, look at some interactive videos made in H5P, and discuss how some of the activity types might be used in courses. She will also talk about how the activities can be distributed to students, shared between collaborators, and some of the challenges of this platform.
This session will be of interest to all who want to learn more about how to create interactive content for their classes, and how this tool can be used in today’s learning environment. This will also be of interest to anyone who is interested in including interactive content to most any variety of web publishing, including showing your Twitter feeds.
