    H5P has an ever-growing catalogue of various interactive content types to choose from. The most current way to explore these is to go to the source – H5P.org – and look at their current catalogue of content types under “View all”.

    Activity

    1. Go to the Content Type Catalogue on H5P.org
    2. Select at least 4 or 5 (or more!) and try the example
    3. For each content type, consider the features and benefits and how you could possibly use it in your teaching and learning

    Accessibility

    H5P has a deep commitment to accessibility and gathers user testing feedback for each tool. Check out their complete list of how each tool meets (or does not meet) accessibility requirements.

    Keep in mind that you also have some control of certain aspects of accessibility when creating your content type – such as selecting contrast colours and accessible fonts. Refer to the Accessibility module to learn more about these practices. The presentation below offers some general tips on making some types of H5P content types accessible.

    Use the arrows to move through the H5P slideshow below.

If you’re unsure, you can seek copyright counsel through your Library, Teaching and Learning Centre or a Copyright Office, depending on your institution.
