Creating Interactive Content with H5P

Thursday, August 5, 2021:  11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The registration period has closed for this event.


Lecture videos, recorded slide presentations and text-based course content tend to engage students in passive ways. Using H5P, this workshop introduces multiple ways that you can build interactivity into your course content, thereby encouraging active engagement. Many types of interactive elements are available in H5P including embedded quizzes to check for understanding throughout a video or presentation, flashcards or matching exercises to reinforce key terms, interactive timelines, hotspots in diagrams, and many more. H5P learning modules can be integrated into Moodle, Google Sites or Wordpress.

This will take place as a Zoom meeting. Participants will receive the link to join the meeting via their confirmation email.
