H5P is a free, open source authoring tool integrated with eLearn that allows you to create, share and reuse a wide variety of interactive and engaging learning objects. These learning objects can be used to give students opportunities for formative assessment or to interact with course content in a different way using simple pre-built interactivities such as drag and drop, hot spots, fill in the blanks or more complex interactions such as branched scenarios. The activities can be graded or used as formative evaluations, to give students practice in retrieving their knowledge.
In addition to creating your own H5P interactive learning content, there are open source repositories of H5P objects licensed under Creative Commons for reuse including:
Check out the Introduction to eLearn site on eLearn (available on your dashboard) for step by step instructions on how to add existing H5P to your course as well as instructions for creating your own interactive learning content.
