How to create H5P with Content bank?

H5P is a powerful tool that can transform a traditional, static lesson into an engaging and interactive learning experience. It can be employed to craft quiz questions, create graphics with interactive hotspots, add moving content, and more. 

For summative assessment, such as exams, it is recommended for security reasons to use the Quiz activity rather than H5P.

Steps to Create H5P Content:

  1. Enable editing in your course.

  2. Click on the gear icon at the top-right corner of the page.

  3. Scroll down and select "Content Bank."

  4. Click the "Add" button and choose an H5P interactive content type.

For a step-by-step example of creating an in-video quiz using the Content Bank, please refer to the following section.
