Adding a new Interactive Content

3. Set your grading strategy

  • H5P activities default to a Maximum grade of 10.

  • As H5P activities appear in the Gradebook for students, we recommend you set up a formative assessment category and set the total for this category to 0 so that the grades for these activities do not contribute to the course total.

4. Select the interactive activity type

H5P provides a number of different activity types, we recommend Course Presentation.Many of the other activity types are already available in more robust Moodle activity types, e.g. Quiz. The Course Presentation enables you to develop an interactive presentation for student and can help to facilitate more active learning approaches online.

  • Select Course Presentation from the Editor drop-down list and click Use.
