Trying out H5P

Update 2020-10-05: My version (the upper one) was slightly modified. The previous state (referred to by the first three comments), is now frozen in screenshots (embedded, fullscreen). There is also a little “making-of” video here.

Inspired by CogDog & JRDingwall’s “kitchen“, I played with H5P interactive textbook elements, and tried to “cook” my own content type.


The above version violates the doctrine of the “Split-Attention Effect” (because the explanations are not close to the items described; see here for more). So I also created a version using the original H5P content type of “Image Hotspot”, see below.

Which one do you like better?

  1. This is definitely much better! I find a number of things on their layouts could use improving, but this makes a clear case for it. Not only the cognitive load to process, what about the repetition of feedback being in the same place? I would suspect learners might scan it more quickly because it looks the same.

    What did it take to change? You should submit/share it with the H5P developers.
