About H5P

  • H5P is an abbreviation for HTML5 Package. It enables educators to create content such as interactive videos, quizzes and presentations.
  • Existing H5P activities (created for example on h5p.org or h5p.com) may be embedded into Moodle either by linking the URL or by uploading the file.

Manage H5P content types

  • In order for teachers to upload and display existing H5P files in their courses, the appropriate H5P content types and libraries must be available on the site.
  • A scheduled task Download available H5P content types from h5p.org should do this automatically (but check if it is enabled and has already run after first upgrading your site.)
  • If it is not possible to use this scheduled task, then the Site administration page 'Manage H5P content types' allows you to upload necessary files.
  • Note also that without the scheduled task or the relevant files being uploaded, course teachers will receive an error message when trying to upload H5P content.
