H5P Interactive Content Integration

H5P Interactive Content Integration

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

 

This is an awesome FREE online quiz and interactive content generator that includes over 30+ different content types.

 

I have blogged about it here and included several worked examples: H5P - Free Interactive Content Creation with HTML5 

 

H5P already intgrates with Moodle and plans for LTI integration is on their road map:

HP5 is very robust and would allow a huge number of interactives to be added to Canvas. It would replace all authoring tools, making building interactive content simple and fast. Here is a partial list of what could be integrated:

 

Layout – allows for columns, drag and drop, iframe embedder for url or a set of files, create collages of multiple images, generate bar and pie charts, accordion (create vertically stacked expandable items) and agamotto (create a sequence of images that gradually change), course presentations – no need to use Google slides – use this to create interactive slides with or without parallax effects

 

Activities - Fill in the blanks, text-based drag and drops, hotspots on images (including multiple), short answer, interactive and moving images, videos with built-in interactions, interactive text highlighter, memory games, quizzes with various question choices (including T/F and multiple choice), personality quizzes, questionnaires, answer questions using voice, multimedia timelines, and dialog cards (create text based turning cards), social media integrations, math Quizzes - create time-based arithmetic quizzes

Thanks!

It really useful tool for online learning. Now I can include h5p + scorm as a scorm object to get score in Canvas LMS.

Gideon,

This is a very helpful outline to access the the h5p.  This integration will make google life much easier by streamlining documents and access points for the students. I will use this to manage a wider variety of digital assignments and assessments. It will also help in accessing prepared presentations more smoothly.  Thanks for highlighting this new feature, I am really looking forward to becoming a fluent user.

Hi Vu,

Can you please describe how you are doing this.  The more detailed instructions you can offer the better.

Thanks,

Hyim

I think H5P will be great when available as a Canvas LTI... What would be good is some way of tracking activities - or is this already possible with xAPI / TinCan or similar?

The H5P video really tool looks like a great way to add valuable interactions such as quiz and navigation points.

Interesting new H5P auto-marking of essays tool at:

I only just found out about H5P today and it does look interesting. I was also looking at soft chalk which costs money, so i like that H5P is free. I would like to know more about people's experience with it. Upsides and downsides. Also, I just wish Canvas would include activities like these as part of their actual product. It seems like for anything innovative you have to go to a third party. 

Also, curious, how is support for this product? Has anyone used H5P run into an issue? I am interested in it.

Will have a look at SoftChalk - thanks. As for H5P, am sure you spotted the  H5P - Free Interactive Content Creation with HTML5 which takes you to a post with lots of examples. Would also recommend some sites on Web 2.0 tools post here - https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/k12/blog/2016/11/05/web-20-tools 

I had a look at Book Widgets the other day as it appeared on a Canvas twitter post. Has some amazing features but not free. I posted this reply which kind of backs up what you said earlier - This is a fabulous tool and full of extra features not in CanvasLMS Am afraid that it is out of our budget especially for whole school adoption.. Would be good if CanvasLMS offered some partnership discounts 🐵

Yes. I edited my post to be more clear. Softchalk costs money. Though they do have a repository of pre-built content which I believe is free. The soft chalk content creation software costs money.

Thanks, I'll delete the post... Am always on the look out for FREE resources - especially those that will embed on a Canvas page. Latest find is www.sugarcane.com which is like Quizlet supercharged! Cannot yet embed in a Canvas page but hugely effective...

Softchalk is kind of old and clunky. The UI looks like something from the early 2000s. The activities don't look that great in terms of quality. 

H5P is all HTML5 and it looks nice! So, from a visual perspective, H5P is way better.

This is great news!!! Are we talking about h5p.org, h5p.com, or both (  )?

GideonWilliams

But very unlikely to be a free feature.......!

For anyone wondering, this is both a paid integration (LTI) and a free service. You can use h5p.org for free and you can embed your projects into your Canvas pages the same way you would embed a video. (Button shown below)298550_pastedImage_1.png

The other option is to pay for h5p.com LTI integration. I have posted the differences below as a screenshot taken directly from the installation instructions. From the image, you are paying for gradebook integration and you can choose what is and is not shared (everything on .org is shared publicly).

You can do a 30-day trial to get everything integrated into Canvas but after that, you must pay. I looked around and did not see any general pricing ranges on Google, so you would have to get a hold of the company for that. I hope this helps someone.

Hi Bill, if you drop me a DM I can give you an idea on pricing. We have purchased the H5P.com integration having used H5P.org for a few years
