Active Learning in Passive Environments: Using H5P to Open Up Learning (At No Cost)

Event Date & Time

Event Description

This event is part of theĀ 2022 Celebrate Learning Week.

The price of attending university in North America is significantly higher than in other developed countries (OECD, 2018). Moreover, international and minoritized students are often harder hit by hidden costs, like textbooks and homework systems (NCES, 2019). In this workshop, we will demonstrate how attendees can use H5P, a simple, open source tool that can be used to bring formative assessment opportunities into your course at no extra cost to the student or the faculty. Using H5P, attendees will learn how to create and embed interactive elements like multiple choice questions, drag-and-drop, and simple interactive videos. We will also demonstrate how H5P has been used to enrich several courses across several disciplines.
