H5P is an abbreviation for HTML5 Package, and allows academic and support staff involved in subject and course development to create a range of interactive resources/activities.
Create your interactive resources through WordPress sites for each subject and then embed your H5P content into Interact2 for students to use.
H5P is a free, open source platform that contains a suite of tools you can use to create interactive learning objects (e.g. to be included within your own subject content). CSU has its own secure platform for creating H5P objects, which is hosted on our own servers.
H5P activities can be easily embedded in an interact site.
Any staff member can request a site for their subject or project at http://h5p.csu.edu.au
Works across most browsers and devices.
H5P has many assessment tools however these can only be used for formative assessment not summative as our current version does not store results.
Some content types are not accessible so additional resources may needs to be provided if these interactives are used.
The H5P site is not to be used as the method of activity delivery.
