Displaying H5P on Moodle

Press this button in the text editor to insert H5P

To use Display H5P content in a text editor you must click on the H5P icon.

Insert H5P through a URL or by uploading a file

After that, you will be prompted to enter either a URL of H5P content or a file. You can browse repositories to upload a file.

H5P content will appear as this box before posting to forum

Once you have entered H5P into the text editor only appear as a grey rectangle with the words H5P. This does not mean that the content does not work necessarily. Simply click post to forum to see if the H5P shows up.

Once posted H5P content will appear. In this case, H5P content is Word Search

If you have done everything right you will see the content visualized once you have posted it to forum. Now everyone that can view the page is able to interact with the H5P content.
