H5P Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Used by educators all over the world, H5P is a quick-to-learn tool for building interactives for formative assessments like quizzes, matching games, unit reviews, and more. Interactives built in H5P are open access, easy to reuse, and designed with both accessibility and academic integrity in mind. They’re also highly portable and can be plugged into most existing Learning Management Systems, as well as WordPress and Pressbooks. And better than all of this: it’s super fun to use.
This BYOD workshop is intended for anyone interested in using H5P to work collaboratively to build new interactives for their own classroom teaching or instructional support needs. Options to author in Wordpress or Pressbooks will be offered to participants, and support will be provided for those who wish to work within their existing LMS. If you’re new to the possibilities of H5P, an introductory tutorial will be provided; if you have some familiarity already, you’ll be encouraged and supported to try out one of the H5P offerings you’ve never worked with before. In addition to lots of hands-on development time, participants will engage in a robust discussion about using H5P effectively, including:
- considerations of accessibility, universal design, and authoring on the web;
- best practices for the use and design of H5P interactives; and
- advice for finding and adapting open-access content for use in your interactives.
All participants will leave the session with at least two finished H5P interactives and a clear understanding of how to download, save, reuse, and integrate their builds into their preferred online learning spaces. Participants will also be encouraged to practice authoring in H5P in at least two different environments.
