What is an H5P activity?

The H5P activity enables H5P content created in the Content bank or on h5p.com to be easily added to a course.

For help embedding H5P content, such as in Pages or Labels, see H5P. This explains how to use the H5P icon in the Atto editor.

Overview of the H5P activity


How is it set up?

  1. Ensure that you first have an existing H5P activity to upload, or that you have created one in the Content bank.
  2. In a course, with the editing turned on, choose 'H5P' from the activity chooser.
  3. Give it a name and, if needed, a description.
  4. From Package file >file picker, add your H5P file from the Upload a file link or from the Content bank. Note: If you add the content as an alias, any modifications will be displayed here but if you add it as a copy, the modifed version will not display. For more information see Working with files
  5. Expand the other sections to select the settings you want, and then click Save and return to course.
