Finding H5P


Why start from scratch when the content may already be created?

  • Find and reuse as is, or revise and customize.
  • Each piece of H5P content can be downloaded and imported into your Pressbooks hosted book.
    • This option creates a copy.
    • It is new file with a new ID number.
    • Changes to the original H5P will not change or alter this new file.
  • You can also use the embed code and reuse the content outside of Pressbooks.
    • This option does not create a copy.
    • Any changes to the original will be reflected in the embedded version.

Note: You  can also display the H5P created in Pressbooks on a web page including learning management systems (LMS) pages using the embed code.
