H5P is short for HTML5 Package and is a simple way to create and share rich and interactive web content. H5P is modular and consists of several content types and applications, specially designed for use in e-learning.

H5P can be integrated with learning platforms and content management systems and allows teachers to create rich interactive content and students to experience them on laptops, tablets or smartphones. 

There are many content types useful for learning in H5P. For interactive content we recommend the following types:

How to do it (step by step)

Step 1

Interactive video

Record a video from a lecture and add quizzes and in-depth information along the way. Students get a more engaging video experience. It’s super easy to add interactive tasks and no technical skills are required, you only need a browser.

By adding extra explanations that students may choose to see in the videos you create differentiated learning. The top students may choose to see in-depth information about the subject, weaker students may choose to display extra explanations that the top students don’t need. Students who learn best by solving problems may choose to solve problems as they move along through the videos.


Step 2


The presentation content type is useful for presenting a topic by using keywords, images, video clips and audio. You can combine all of these elements into a rich multimedia learning experience, and you can also add various quiz questions along the way.

By combining images, visualizations, notes, and sound you engage the student in a way that makes many students learn more effectively. The notes help the student remember and friendly explanations using sound helps the student to understand.
