KB1280 - Using the H5P OER Hub

Tags moodle h5p oer

H5P's searchable "OER Hub" lets you browse and download activities from other H5P authors, under OER licensing.

The OER Hub is integrated right into H5P in VCC Moodle. You can easily search and use activities submitted from H5P users across the globe. You can also submit your own H5P activities out to the H5P OER ecosystem for others to use.

H5P OER Hub: Features in a Nutshell

  • Browse hundreds of publicly-distributable H5P activities covering all kinds of subjects and different languages. (It's not all gold ;) but there is a lot to choose from!)
  • Download H5P activities and customize them to your needs, right inside your Moodle course.
  • Upload your own H5P activity (or an adaptation you've made to one) and share your work back out to the H5P OER community.
