Exploring H5P: What it means, and how to use it to create dynamic, engaging OER

Description: Dynamic, interactive content can enhance Open Educational Resources such as textbooks and other online materials and allow for greater student satisfaction and higher levels of retention, comprehension, and understanding. H5P, or HTML-5 Packages, make it simple to create customized content such as dialog cards, image collages, drag-the-words, memory games, and much more—all of which can be added to Pressbooks and other publishing platforms. This presentation will help participants understand what HTML5 means and why it’s so important to the modern web, and also demonstrate the process of locating, customizing, and implementing interactive H5P elements in OER materials.
