This 90 minute workshop was for the Heartbeat of Teaching symposium, part of the Educational Designer's Making a Difference series for Monash University. Hosted by the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.

Abstract:

Using new technologies in teaching can be intimidating. New programs have steep learning curves and it can be hard to know where to start. H5P however is a quick and easy way to develop interactive activities for online environments, such as Moodle, or for use in face-to-face teaching. It’s a completely free and open technology, and a great tool for any experience level. Start with something simple (no coding required!), then get more creative pushing the boundaries of the technology as you progress.

This workshop will take you through the basics of H5P, its benefits and limits, and the wide variety of activities you can create. From quizzes, to games and interactive videos – there’s a huge choice of templates, just fill them in! You will then get hands-on building an activity from scratch. By the end, you will have the practical skills to get started straight away on building more engaging interactive content for any purpose.
