The H5P in 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 engaging and interactive 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.

  • This course is facilitated by Stuart Mealor (Managing Director of HRDNZ Moodle Partner), and Ruth Boal - education professional with a Master of Education (MEd) and experienced H5P designer.
