  • Interactive Videos – Don’t use just video when you can use interactive videos easily with H5P. The interactive videos content type allows you to add multiple choice and  fill in the blank questions, pop-up text and other types of interactions to your videos using only a web browser. The best feature of the interactive videos content type is that the quiz is adaptive in nature, meaning that you can jump to another part of the video based on the user’s input.

  • Quiz (Question Set) – Easily create quizzes with kinds of questions. Many question types are supported like multiple choice, fill in the blanks, drag the words, mark the words and regular drag and drop. You can customize the Question set with background images and define a pass percentage for the learner. Another good feature is that the Question Set also allows you to add videos that are played at the end. One video for success, another if the learner fails the test. This might motivate learners to try again if they fail so that they get to see the success video. Top 10 H5P content types to use in Moodle course – Part:2 #MoodletipsCheck out the full list of available content types available within H5P here.
