EdTech, Authoring tools: H5P
H5P is a plugin for existing publishing systems that enables the system to create interactive content like Interactive Videos, Presentations, Games, Quizzes and more! H5P makes it easy to create interactive content by providing a range of content types for various needs. Preview and explore these content types below.
For a full overview check this https://h5p.org/content-types-and-applications
You can create interactive content by adding the H5P plugin to your WordPress, Moodle or Drupal site, or integrate it via LTI with Learning Management Systems (LMSs) such as Canvas, Brightspace, Blackboard and many other Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) that support LTI integration. <LTI stands for “learning tool interoperability.”
See e.g. Catapult partner TELLConsult’s website for an implementation on a WordPress site trialling the Drag & Drop content type using text from a locally developed, small corpus on LSP teaching & learning: a paragraph of Nergiz Kern’s contribution ‘Benefits of technology use in ESP’ to Innovations in learning technologies for English language teaching (Motteram, 2013)
