Moodle Mobile App compatibility
H5P contents are compatible with the Mobile App provided these 2 parameters have been set in Admin.
- Site administration > Mobile app > Mobile settings > Enable web services for mobile devices (of course!)
- Site administration > Security > HTTP security > Allow frame embedding
Note 1.- The help text in this 2nd parameter displays a wrong piece of information. It reads "Please, note also that for the mobile app this setting is ignored and frame embedding is always allowed." This is not true for H5P, Frame embedding must be enabled.
Note 2.- If the admin has forgotten to enable this setting, in the Mobile App 2 different messages will be displayed to the end-user, according to their role (or rather their capacities).
- student role: This site is not configured properly for displaying mobile H5P content. Please contact a site administrator.
- admin role: Iframe embedding must be enabled in order to display H5P content in the mobile app. You can enable it by checking Allow frame embedding" in Site Administration / Security / Http Security
You can enable/disable:
- Display action bar and frame
- Download button
- Copyright button
