Project H5P – like Moodle is an open source community driven project. The vision behind the H5P project is to empower everyone to create, share and reuse interactive content. H5P Project gives you the flexibility to create Open Source, Free to Use, HTML5 based Responsive Interactive content.
Since the first release in 2013, H5P community has grown exponentially. It is being used by more than 19000+ websites. Even the first H5P con was also organized in Tromsø, Norway from 11 Sept – 13 Sept 2017.
H5P is available as a plugin for Drupal, WordPress and Moodle platforms. However, most of the H5P code is framework independent. It’s easy to create integrations for new frameworks.
