Getting Started

For inspiration in getting started, take a look at some of H5P’s example content.

Instructor Resources

New H5P content can be created within Canvas, but it is a good idea to explore the content types and practice creation on H5P’s website before building within Canvas.

Create Interactive Content in H5P

When you log into H5P through Canvas or the H5P website, there will be a folder with Author’s name. It is important to add all new content inside this folder.

Note: For easier navigation, it is recommended to create a sub-folder in the primary Author’s folder for each course or project. Content should be given unique, meaningful names.

Add H5P Content to Canvas

H5P can be added in Canvas as assignmentsmodules, or inline on pages. Note that Canvas only tracks grades from assignments.
