15 Interactive Modules (H5P)

You can use H5P interactivity modules on PolyBook. With H5P you can easily create, share and reuse HTML5 content and applications. Keep in mind that the interactive modules can only be used with the web version of your PolyBook.

For more background information and details on how to use H5P visit the official website.

Creating a new H5P Module

To add a new module, go to the left sidebar menu and select ‚H5P Content > Add New‚. Now you can either upload an existing file (*.h5p) or create one from scratch.

  1. Add a title.
  2. Select (and install) any content type from the window below.
  3. Add your content.
  4. Click on the ‚Create‚ button.

Insert H5P Content

To insert a H5P module to your PolyBook go to the editor and click on the ‚Add H5P‚ button above the toolbar. Find the right module and click on its ‚Insert‚ button. This will insert the H5Ptag with the respective ID. Save your post and click on ‚View post‚ to see how your updated chapter looks. You can only add H5P modules you have previously created (see above).

Who can add H5P modules?

Users who have the user role ’subscriber‘ cannot add H5P modules. Anybody else with access rights (user roles: contributor, author, editor, administrator) can add H5P content to a PolyBook.

Be aware of the following limitations

  • Although authors and editors can add modules, they cannot install new H5P content types. They can only use content types that have already been installed. If you do not want to give the users administrator’s rights to your PolyBook, install all the content types you think will be used in advance.
  • To add the modules into a chapter, users need to have access to that chapter. Authors only have access to chapters that they own, i.e. that they have opened themselves. Editors and administrators have access to all chapters.
