H5P Interactive Content

H5P Logo

H5P is a free, open-source library of interactive content that can be used both in and out of CCLE. Fun and rich, it can include interactive video (annotation and quizzing), games, assessments, and timelines, just to name a few!  

Based on HTML5 (the most current HTML standard), this allows for their use across browsers and platforms, and does not require the use and configuration of proprietary browser plugins, such as Adobe’s Flashplayer.  H5P content is mobile friendly and responsive, which is great for students regardless of their choice of device.

With H5P, you may author your content directly in your CCLE course site. As with all content within CCLE, you have the option to adjust its visibility, and other accessibility settings as you would with any other activity or resource. And just like those others, you may migrate this content to other courses, and download it locally for offline storage and retention.

You may also choose to author content via the H5P website (https://h5p.org/). You will be required to create a (free) login with them to do so.

Available content types

H5P is a dynamic community, and is constantly improving and changing – new interactive content types are added regularly.  As such some of the content types featured in H5P’s online authoring tool may not be available within CCLE. If you find one that you’d like to use  and you don’t see it in CCLE, let us know!
