Eurekos and H5P founder Svein-Tore Griff With announced today that they are working together on a major initiative to enhance the H5P application to achieve their vision of making static websites a thing of the past and making it incredibly easy for everyone to create, share and reuse interactive content.
What is H5P?
H5P is open-source technology used by website developers and application designers to make websites more interactive with pre-built quizzes, games, interactive videos, drag and drop tools and a large selection of other interactive “mini” applications. The H5P plugin is available on WordPress, Moodle and Drupal websites, which account for a large percentage of the world’s websites.
Eurekos and the entire H5P open-source community have been working together informally for many years to build an innovative application with rich content that has been adopted by over 30,000 of the world’s most popular websites and eLearning applications.
Svein-Tore Griff With, H5P Founder and CEO at Joubel said, “With so many high-profile organizations using H5P, many consider H5P to be a massive success. In my mind, we have a long way to go. There are some huge game-changers that are still waiting to be implemented and I’m looking forward to working with the great team at Eurekos and the rest of the H5P community to implement these improvements and realize more of H5P’s vision to empower everyone to create, share and reuse interactive content”
Because H5P is open source and has become incredibly popular, Eurekos, who use H5P in their learning management system, are donating their skills and innovations to provide hosting and make H5P an even better application, especially for the purpose of training platforms. The H5P tools that make websites more interactive are doing the same for eLearning courses to improve the effectiveness of training programs and help people more quickly turn training into skills and knowledge.
“A person taking an elearning course is much more likely to finish the training and retain what they learned if the course is fun, interesting and interactive.” Said Nick Eriksen, the Co-Founder of Eurekos. “That’s why we built H5P inherently into our learning management system, because we wanted our customers to build rich courses that change the lives of their employees by making them more educated and productive.”
H5P makes it easy to create, share and reuse HTML5 content and applications. H5P empowers everyone to create rich and interactive web experiences more efficiently – all you need is a web browser and a web site with an H5P plugin. H5P is a completely free and open technology, licensed with the MIT license. Demos/downloads, tutorials and documentation are all available for users who want to join the community.
