Status Updates

9/26: Our 2022-2023 H5P + Laulima cohort has officially kicked off this month! Mahalo to all the participants who joined us at our H5P + Laulima Orientation sessions on Sep. 9. The H5P + Laulima Presentation (Google Slides) has been updated with Q&A (slide 54-58) and additional Resources (slide 59-60). The FAQs document will continue to be updated as more questions (and answers) come up during this cohort.

Don’t forget to leverage the Quicklinks and Resources (to the right of this message), along with our Google Groups community for assistance, support and sharing as you begin your exploration of H5P! We look forward to seeing your awesome creations coming soon!

About the H5P + Laulima Program

What is H5P + Laulima?

H5P is an authoring tool that lets you create simple interactive content and activities like interactive videos, quizzes, games, presentations, and more. In 2021, University of Hawaiʻi piloted the use of the paid version with a pilot group of faculty across nine campuses to enable the integration of H5P activities into Laulima courses so that student progress can be tracked/graded. Due to the success of the pilot, the H5P + Laulima program will be continuing for another academic year.

How can H5P be used in online courses?

There are several types of interactive activities that can be created with H5P such as:

  • Drag and Drop, Hotspots
  • Branching Scenario, Memory Games, Timelines
  • Interactive Video, Course Presentations
  • AR (Augment Reality) Scavenger, Virtual Tour (360)
  • and many more!

Take a look at some embedded samples below created by UH faculty and staff using H5P (includes both graded and ungraded learning activities/assessments). Or, to access the full repository from our UH H5P + Laulima users, visit the UH H5P Interactives Library page.

H5P + Laulima Program Feedback

Video Testimonials

Evaluation Feedback

I was excited to see how [H5P] could make my asynchronous course more engaging for the students. It was wonderful to easily embed the interactives in Laulima Lessons and linked with Laulima Gradebook.

Pilot Participant 2021-2022 Pilot Cohort

This was such a great addition to my lab. I had already provided videos, images and websites to help students study Anatomy structures. But this was a much more active learning process for them that they found fun, easy to use and helpful in remembering structures. With the interactives, I was quickly able to assess studentʻs learning or participation. Previously, I would do reflection papers or some other type of reflection about learning on a certain topic to assess the students. These interactives saved both the student and me time and gave me data about a focused topic.

H5P activities seamlessly added a level of engagement to my online courses that did not exist before. I really hope that UH will subscribe to H5P for the long-term and that all faculty would have the opportunity to utilize H5P. Thank you for having this pilot!

Pilot Participant 2021-2022 Pilot Cohort

Before using H5P I had a challenge in helping my physiology student study for anatomical structures since moving online. They no longer were able to go in person to study. So this was a great solution. Having a H5P activity that provided kinesthetic learning in addition to the traditional lecture and reading was much appreciated by students.

Pilot Participant 2021-2022 Pilot Cohort

Having access to so many interactives made my courses fun for me (and hopefully, my students). I was looking for a way to gamify some aspects of the course to increase engagement and I think I succeeded!

I can place the interactives strategically in Laulima exactly when and where it is most useful. It’s also helpful for visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners. Students have mentioned they found them engaging and useful.

In the analytics H5P provides, I can see that in many cases students engage in multiple attempts to complete the tasks in the interactives. This is great considering that aspects of language acquisition, like vocabulary, require multiple exposures to words in a wide variety of contexts.

Pilot Participant 2021-2022 Pilot Cohort

My goal was to help increase student engagement with the video lectures I provide for them. H5P allowed me to explore a variety of methods to accomplish this. 😀

Pack your patience! That’s my advice with anyone new to H5P. There were lots of boxes to check or uncheck, so many options and it was easy to get overwhelmed at first.. However, once you get the hang of it, it is sooooooo cool!

Pilot Participant 2021-2022 Pilot Cohort

Students did better on quizzes and projects because the H5P interactives allowed students to practice what they learned and provided "scaffolding" type of preparation for assignments.
