H5P in LearnJCU

H5P is an external tool that has been integrated into LearnJCU. It affords the creation of interactive and rich web content that can enhance learner-content interactions in your subject site.

According to Moore (1989), there are three kinds of interactions in distance education; learner-learner, learner-content, and learner-teacher.  Even though Moore made these observations before the advent of the Internet and online learning, the principles still apply.  Moore proposed that the more of these three types of interactions, the more effective the learning experience.  This was confirmed by a review of the literature (Bernard et al., 2009), which found that the more interactions in a subject, and in particular of the learner-content and learner-learner types, the higher the academic achievement.

...And so what does this all mean? Well, if you can create content that encourages students to interact with it, then this will promote learning.  H5P can do just that. To find out more, first explore the content types found in the H5P Examples Library. Then following that, review the information below.
