Technology in the classroom has often been used to present knowledge in many different ways. From videos to slide decks to learning management systems, it has expanded how we interact with the content of a course, albeit typically in a somewhat passive way.

This landscape is evolving thanks in part to H5P (an abbreviation for “HTML5 Package”), a technology that helps instructors make their courses more interactive, and helps students improve how they learn. Members of the UBC teaching and learning community are involved in this shift, where two instructors and H5P early adopters explain how they use it, why they are using it, and what they are doing to promote its use for knowledge retention.

Please visit the CTLT website to read the full story and learn more about H5P at UBC.

UBC is committed to sustaining and evolving efforts to support faculty in the ongoing integration of evidence-informed pedagogies into their classrooms, and encouraging innovations that have the potential to improve upon traditional learning approaches, through Strategy 11: Education Renewal.
