H5P in Pressbooks at IU

H5P, or HTML5 Package, is a plug-in allowing the creation of interactive content in Pressbooks at IU. With H5P in Pressbooks, you can:

  • Create context for images by adding hotspots
  • Include interactive timelines with your texts
  • Add practice quizzes (fill in the blank, multiple choice, etc.) to texts delivered in Pressbooks
  • Build and host flashcards and games
  • Enrich videos with quizzes, text, and more
  • H5P activities in Pressbooks cannot currently record or send grades to the Canvas Gradebook, and are therefore most appropriate for practice activities.
  • H5P activities cannot be exported in bulk (including as part of a text export). To move H5P activities between texts, you need to download and upload them individually to the new text.

For a list of content types that may be created in H5P with examples, see Examples and Downloads.

To get started using H5P in Pressbooks:

  1. If you haven’t already, create a text in Pressbooks.
  2. Create your H5P content following the instructions in H5P Interactive Content.
