Have you used H5P with Moodle for creating interactive content? Is it reliable and consistent?

Check out the discussion going on Moodle forums about the H5P and Moodle integration

H5P – the platform to create interactive content is a big hit among Moodle users also. It allows to easily create and share interactive content like Presentations, Quizzes, Collage etc. Similar to Moodle, H5P is also an open source and free to use project, although it is available under MIT license as compared to Moodle’s GPL.

You can create interactive content with H5P directly from H5P.org or else you can use the H5P Moodle plugin. The H5P moodle plugin allows you to directly create the interactive content within Moodle and log the user activity & grades.

Recently, One of the Moodle community member started a forum thread questioning the reliability and consistency of H5P platform to work across different devices.

Soon, the Moodle community members came in to support the H5P project and shared their positive feedback about the project. Out of the discussion it was observed that the permissions for the guest role were not right.

New version of the H5P Moodle plugin:

Soon, H5P Moodle plugin development team released a new version of the plugin fixing all the issues and permission issues. The new version of the plugin also includes the following changes:

  • Revamped default permissions and contexts, also made permissions names more recognizable.
  • Makes setting max-grade and passing grade easier through the activity settings
  • Implemented embedding

Apart from the Moodle specific changes, the new plugin version also includes the changes on H5P editor like:

  • A complete re-write of the hub-client and major improvements to its error messages
  • Allow multiple content to be loaded at the same time
  • Updated CKEditor to version 4.7.3

Have you got your hands dirty with H5P yet? What is your opinion about the H5P project with Moodle? Whether it is stable and reliable or still inconsistent? Do share your views with whole  Moodle and H5P experts in this forum thread.
