H5P is fast becoming the most sought-after open-source solution for developing interactive e-learning content.
H5P can transform the learning experience by allowing organisations to offer a variety of engaging and visually appealing content types. This article will shine a spotlight on one particularly powerful content type: Interactive Video.
There are recognised benefits in using video to communicate ideas and learning concepts. The format satisfies a broad range of preferred learning styles through the inclusion of images, sound and text.
Examples of H5P’s interactive elements to videos - such as questions, hotspots and drag-and-drop exercises – build upon this to further promote engagement from your learners as well as a way to assess the comprehension of the learning content.
One of the most powerful examples of H5P's interactive features the ability to provide direct navigation to specific time-frames in the video to review where a concept covered in that segment perhaps hasn’t been clearly understood.
By prompting the learner with questions at key points in the video, a wrong answer can then offer to redirect the learner back to a specific segment in the video so that the concept can be watched again.
So, rather than simply presenting the learner with the correct answer to the question, the learner is encouraged to watch and listen again to discover the answer for themselves.
