The H5P team has been working for some time on always amazing new features so that users can use and improve in detail what they want to share on their site.
- The first new type of content is Choice of images. Thus, the authors will be able to ask the students to answer a question by selecting one or more images.
- The second new type of content is Crossword. Who doesn’t like crosswords? It’s a fun way to learn and memorize new concepts. Authors will be able to enter a variety of words and suggestions and a crossword puzzle will be automatically generated. And the best part is that the author can customize it however they want.
- The third new activity is Sort paragraphs. Here, students should arrange the paragraphs in the correct order.
Image Choice and Crossword are available to H5P.com users, who must activate them on their Settings ➡ Content types menu; while Sort Paragraphs will be published later. Users on self-hosted LMS or CMS can take advantage of these 3 new activities right away.
