H5P: An Easy Way to Make Interactive Content

H5P is an easy (and free!) way to make interactive content in a variety of formats – which can also be embedded in Canvas. A few examples of this platform include:

  • Interactive videos with a variety of questions, additional resources, and more that can be added directly into videos.
  • Course presentations with interaction added into slide decks that students participate in before advancing.
  • Branching scenarios for adaptive learning, guiding users through scenarios.
  • Dialog cards (and flash cards) allow instructors to add audio to a flash card deck – perfect for teaching languages or for audio learners. Similarly, Speak the Word Sets create assignments that can be answered by the student’s voice.
