H5P in the online classroom

Student Engagement & H5P

Although I am naturally one to embrace new technology, it feels like 2020 has nearly stretched my capacity for all things “new.” However, after being introduced to H5P this summer, I have embraced this technology as my favorite part of a year full of the unprecedented. One of the greatest challenges I faced in switching to online teaching has been ensuring my students stay engaged in material that is equal in rigor to what I would present face to face. H5P has been a primary contributing solution to this challenge. Even when I transition back to a hybrid model, I will still use H5P to create interactivity in the course shell for my students.


Top Three Reasons Why I Use H5P

I’m using H5P in three main ways. One way is that I can embed questions into videos in my course shell as quizzes that automatically go to the grade book. Have you found a great YouTube video and want to make sure your students watch it and understand the concepts? H5P is the answer! I’m also creating interactive presentations to ensure that students read through material I’d normally share in a PowerPoint. I don’t want to just upload slide shows and hope they watch them. H5P provides a motivational mechanism to get students looking at each slide. Finally, I’m embedding questions in my module text to check for student understanding and increase their engagement with the course material. H5P is a game-changer for my instruction! It’s enabling me to provide rigorous, engaging material to my students and I’ve only scratched the surface. Even when our situation returns to the preferred method of face to face instruction, I’ll still be using H5P to supplement and support my instruction.
