What do you like best?

I like h5p, I design with code to create rich hifi prototypes with real CSS, mock data apis with basic js data binding, then quick iteration of the code with individual trips pushed to separate urls for user testing. It also facilitates the final development as the user interface is made. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

it has worked for me. You need html knowledge but make it easy. Its block system allows you to pick and choose, making your redesign editing process much faster. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that it allows for group collaboration. Teams in our company have now been able to work on code as a group hence making the work well done and done within a short time. It has a good tutorials that teach on how to use it and that has come in handy since no time is wasted on trying to learn it alone. It is free, and that is more than convenient for any company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In the short time that I have used H5P, there is nothing i have disliked about it. The fact that it teaches you how to use it only makes it better. Also, the response team is very easily reachable and responsive in case one is stuck or has questions about the software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For any company looking for an application that will improve the teamwork and manage HTML projects well, H5P is definitely the way to go. It is definitely worth the try and it is free. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

HP5 has helped our company mostly in the collaboration of projects. Now those projects are finished in a shorter time hence helping us accomplish a huge load of work in a short time. Therefore, I would say that the biggest benefit to my company has been improving teamwork. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The best component pass on is the means by which great it looks on versatile. The substance types are responsive, contact benevolent, and by and large have a decent perfect look to them. I've had no issues with this element and expectation that keeps on being true.This is an astonishing instrument to make simple, innovative intelligent substance in a matter of moments! The devices are very easy to use, clear as crystal and totally adaptable! There are a great deal of choices including YouTube joining, and different sources. H5P additionally works with Drupal and Wordpress which are two of the stages we at present use, it has been an incredible preferred standpoint for us! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is in some cases an absence of consistency between substance types. For instance, one kind of test question may have an audio cue after the client hits submit while another does not. Some may incorporate alternatives to embed sound while other, comparable substance types don't. It would be useful if such alternatives were consistently accessible crosswise over substance types. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Out H5P an attempt and you'll adore it! It will take your substance to another dimension. Furthermore every one of the associations you can use in a solitary substance gives you huge amounts of potential outcomes to make numerous variants and still make it fun and dynamic.Give it an attempt , its free a ¡nd simple to utilize you will love Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am making intelligent learning modules for an elearning course. H5P has been an incredible expansion to the venture as far as course writing. The changed substance types loan themselves well to the kind of venture we're doing. The way that H5P is accessible under a Creative Commons permit is particularly useful for those on a financial plan or who wish to give back without a great deal of cash to spend.We are utilizing H5P executed in a Wordpress setup to appropriate "mind pieces" to our intrigued clients by pamphlet.

Since Adobe released Flash, only HTML5 has been able to overshadow it. Now, H5P is gaining ground thanks to its set of prebuilt activities and to its simplicity.

Especially, I like these aspects of H5P:

- H5P is free and fully standard, because it has been written in HTML5. It is a community-driven project which lets you contribute creating code and more.

- H5P counts with about 40 different interactive activities, which enrich your website with visual actions and questions.

- For me, the 3 best types of activities are: 1) Course Presentation, which allows combining slides with questions, and has a navigation system to move through the content. Course Presentation is like a full program itself. 2) Interactive Video. I like it because is also a full system of contents which use a digital video as a basis with its own timeline. Over the video you can add almost any type of interactive questions. 3)

H5P has made easy the classical activity of matching elements, which is my favorite.

- Finally, I think this is the simplest way we count with to create rich e-learning. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

From my point of view, some limitations are:

- H5P cannot run standalone. It has 3 different versions to incorporate it as a plugin to WordPress, Drupal or Moodle. This can be enough for almost all instructors, but if you want to run it on your Website (without using the previously mentioned tools), it will not run.

- H5P activities are fantastic, in general, but sometimes you need to modify the properties of some types of activities (like screen distribution). Since H5P activities are pre-defined, it can result limited for sophisticated and customized e-learning projects.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

A good way of implementing interactivity without knowledge of HTML5. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- E-learning projects, especially those intented for education.

- Self-assessment courses, because h5P activities provide you with a score.

- I use it in Moodle and WordPress. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The best thing about H5P is that is free and open source. Its easy to use and very intuitive. They have tutorials in their web for begginners which could be helpful for someone who is starting to test this amazing framework. Another feature I like is the mobile version. You can see that the developers put a lot of time into it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

For me language translations are a problem but you can fix that manually. Another thing I dont like is that they do not offer previews of your project. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What I like best is that this is an application that will embed into an LMS (Learning Management System) this allows me and my fellow colleagues to use it in our campus LMS for quizzes, exams, practices for memorizing (puzzles, drag and drop, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Depending on what I am doing, the application can be misleading so I find myself using Google and YouTube - but I ultimately do find the correct "how-to" for what I am seeking. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This HP5 plugin, app, module - is amazingly useful if you are an educator as you can make use of all elements. Additionally, it embeds in about all LMS/CMSs. There is a learning curve, but there is a tremendous amount YouTube videos and google searched tutorials. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We love the way H5P makes creating interactive and inspiring content an easy task for everyone. And, as a Totara Partner, we and our clients really like the opportunity to be able to create the content directly inside the Totara Learn LMS. There are several really interesting interactive content types, which can be used for both interactive learning (quizzes, interactive video) as well as to enhance the UX by adding more engaging and visual content.

And - we really like the opportunities to share and reuse all content, even outside the LMS.

At Xtractor we also appreciate the open source nature of H5P, which makes it fit perfectly with our other open source based learning technologies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it out! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main benefits we've seen it's that it radically lowers the barrier for (new) content/course creators, even more so as H5P content can be created directly in the LMS. And that content can now be shared and reused - no more inventing the same wheel again and again. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This is an amazing tool to make easy, creative interactive content in no time! The tools are very user friendly, self explanatory and completely customizable! There are a lot of options including YouTube integration, and other sources. H5P also works with Drupal and Wordpress which are two of the platforms we currently use, it has been a great advantage for us! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

So far it's been all good, if anything language translations, but since the user can customize buttons and labels, for the end user it wouldn't be a problem, though, the editor needs to understand it. But there are plans to have translations. A feature that will make this even greater is to be able to use the interactive content as stand alone, so users could download for in-person workshops. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitively give H5P a try and you'll love it! It will take your content to another level. Plus all the interactions you can use in a single content gives you tons of possibilities to create multiple versions and still make it fun and dynamic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've been using different tools to make interactive content for LMS and other online platforms and none works like this. There are expensive tools that could create similar products but require time to master and H5P makes it so easy that it's fun to do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The best feature hands down is how good it looks on mobile. The content types are responsive, touch-friendly, and generally have a nice clean look to them. I've had no issues with this feature and hope that continues to be true. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is sometimes a lack of consistency between content types. For example, one type of quiz question might have a sound effect after the user hits submit while another does not. Some might include options to insert audio while other, similar content types do not. It would be helpful if such options were uniformly available across content types.
