Session Abstract

H5P is an open source tool for creating learning artifacts. Recent upgrades to this software have allowed for the creation of branching scenarios which can be used to create short simulations. These simulations can be paired with open textbooks to create interactive open textbooks.

Objectives of the Session

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe some of the interactive open educational resources that can be created with H5P
  • Create interactive open textbooks by combining traditional open textbooks with H5P's branching scenario tool

Full Description of the Session

Given the need to move OER away from the static model of educational media to a more dynamic, interactive model, this presentation will show participants how to create iOER using available, open resources.

H5P is an open source tool for creating learning artifacts. Recent upgrades to this software have allowed for the creation of branching scenarios which can be used to create short simulations. These simulations can be paired with open textbooks to create interactive open textbooks.

I will be using small group discussions, a Twitter feed, and real-time polling in order to make the session as interactive as possible.

Special Zoom Requests

Flip charts, markers, and sticky notes.
