This time I’d like to bring your attention to the new resources we have incorporated to our OCLT (Online Campus for Language Teaching), I am talking about H5P pug-in to Moodle.

H5P implements a tool to build interactive multimedia content very easily. What does it mean? It means that the whole cycle of producing such type of content can be closed in one professional teacher with minimum technical knowledge of IT tools.

The development cycle goes this way:

  1. You list the learning objectives you want to achieve in a class (like you do in your lesson plan)
  2. You find the plot of the story you want to use to explain how to reach those objectives
  3. Then you decide which kind of multimedia you are going to use (images, audio or video). Most probably it will be a combination of the three. Use your smartphone to produce the raw material
  4. Define the skills acquisition activities to be used, like questions or games. Those can be for instance:
    1. Questions to be written down (stand alone or within a multimedia support):
      1. Multiple choice
      2. Fill in the gap
      3. Drag and drop
      4. Essay
    2. Games:
      1. Dialog cards
      2. Memory game
      3. Hotspots
      4. Crosswords, snakes and ladders, hangman, hidden picture, etc.
  5. Use H5P or the powerful Question Bank module in Moodle and our easy tools to build those resources.

Of course you need a training period of time that may last around 6 hours, but once finished you’ll see how you may speed up content development. You become a “knowledge factory” of unlimited reusable content. You are creating modern assets in your company.

If video is the support raw material for your interactive content we have OCLT enabled with your private library provided with video-streaming and all kind of video management tools to make an appealing and effective interactive video content. Students will love it.
