Why did no one tell me about this???

And by this, I mean H5P, the tech tool to create interactive content. H5P is available in Blackboard, with a ton of options.

Because it is such a multifaceted tool though, you should create yourself an account over at h5p.org so you can check out the tutorials and examples they offer, as well as the forums. That’s where I started.

Over the next few weeks, I will be creating video tutorials on some of the H5P features. I am starting with this post with a first video that gets us started with H5P , and how to integrate quizzes in a video and pushing it to the gradebook. In the second video, I will create an interactive presentation.

So, here is your starting point (you can also click on the link to watch the video over on Vimeo):

And here is the video on creating an interactive presentation:

All the items in H5P can be easily integrated in the Blackboard gradebook.

As always, thank you for reading. I hope you enjoy this tool.


A Note from Learning Technologies: H5P is a super cool tool and we hope that this post got you excited about trying it out. However, at the moment, College of DuPage only has a limited number of licenses available for H5P. As a result, if you’d like to use H5P in any of your courses, you’ll need to contact us directly (learningtech@cod.edu or x2390) and we can help you assess if this is the best tool for your needs and provide any training and development assistance that you may need. We look forward to working with you!
