What is H5P?

H5P is a free resource that lets you create simple interactive content like interactive videos, quizzes, games, presentations, and more. Once you create an H5P interaction you can download it and upload it to Moodle, Drupal, or WordPress. The best part is, you can edit it and share it with others, who can also edit it. H5P is a truly ideal way to create portable, editable learning objects. You can also track your students’ progress and scores.
