Create the Dialog Cards H5P interactive content

Creating new H5P content is a multi-step process. H5P activities are managed through a Content Bank – an area where H5P content may be created, edited and stored. Once an activity has been created in the content bank, it can be added to your course and the activity settings can be configured as needed.

  2. Go to the CLE course where you would like to add the activity and turn Edit mode on. 
  3. Navigate to the content bank in your course to create interactive content and visit the H5P dialog cards tutorial to learn how dialog cards work.    
  4. Once your activity has been created, navigate to the section where the activity should be located. 
  5. Click add an activity or resource to add an H5P activity to your course. 
You can combine H5P content into other activities or resources in the CLE such as a Page, Lesson, or Book. Review Embed H5P into other activities in the CLE for more information and instructions.
