The H5P and Moodle course is 4 weeks in duration and is delivered in a current Moodle environment. Each week contains approximately 1-3 hours work.  Please note that this course is NOT an introduction to Moodle, it's for people who know Moodle, and want to understand and integrate H5P to create stunning courses. If you are new to Moodle please take our MoodleBites for Teachers course first.

Designed as 'just in time' training, for busy teachers and designers needing flexibility, and those familiar with Moodle but relatively new to H5P.

  • Each week is facilitated by Stuart Mealor - Managing Director of HRDNZ (certified Moodle Partner since 2006 and Moodle certification manager 2006-2016) and co-facilitated by at least one other experienced H5P designer
