You can add H5P content easily to Moodle in the usual way that you would add add activities and resources to your course. There is also an H5P button within the text editor which allows you to add a link to H5P content you have already created.


Step 1. Login to Moodle and Turn Editing on.

Step 2. On the Topic section where you would like your H5P content, click on Add an Activity or Resource.

Step 3. In the Activity section, double click on H5P Interactive Content

Step 4. Add a title to your content type. This is what the student will see on the Moodle page so it could say something like ‘Flashcards’.

Step 5. Click Select Content Type to open up the various H5P content types.

Step 6. Click Get on the content type you wish to use and you will be presented with the content type details page. This page is where you can read the details of the content type, see screenshots and look at demos.

Step 7. If you wish to continue with the content type you have chosen, scroll down and click on Install.

Step 8. The content type is ready for use. Click Use to open the editor and you will be able to start creating your content.

Once you have selected the interactive video option to add to your module, you will need to add a video and then add interactions to that video.

You can follow the step-by-step instructions on the H5P website.
