Add a H5P activity into your Moodle course

H5P is an interactive tool available in Elon's Moodle installation. Instructors have the ability to create H5P interactive content within their Moodle course or on the H5P website. Examples of H5P content can be found in Elon's H5P Resource Library.

Select "turn editing on" under the gear icon

The "Grades" category expanded with options below

  • Even if you set the maximum grade to 0, the activity will create a column in the course gradebook. You can manually hide that column from students. 

8.) Then, scroll to the bottom and click 'Save and Display'

  • Your H5P interactive content has now been added to your Moodle course. It’s a good idea to test it by clicking on the link and navigating through the activity to verify it’s working as you expect.
