Using H5P with Canvas by Instructure
H5P provides a very tight integration with Canvas through H5P.com.
The images above are screenshots of (1) grades from H5P.com in Canvas, (2) the H5P.com repository in Canvas, (3) editing H5P.com content in Canvas and (4) viewing H5P.com content in Canvas
With H5P.com content may be created from within Canvas, you get your own H5P content repository accessible from within Canvas and grades are stored in Canvas. H5P.com also provides analytics accessible from within Canvas so that teachers may see what the learners answered to the different H5P questions.
To get started with H5P in Canvas just go to H5P.com and start a 30 days free trial. You should make sure your Canvas admin is ready to set up the LTI integration.

Embed activities on Canvas pages instead of as an assignment
Is there a way to embed h5p items on a page instead of adding them as assignments when using the LTI?
Mon, 09/24/2018 - 02:16
Hi Monica,Yes this is
Yes this is possible. You can follow the steps below:
Please note that you will not be able to retrieve scores if you are using the embed option.

Embedded content not loading
I am trying this and my content is not loading. The page either has to be refreshed 2-3x or I have to click on the reuse/button to get it to load.

Hi gnbradley,Can you check if
Can you check if you have errors in the browser console?
Mon, 05/27/2019 - 14:22
I don't think there are any
I don't think there are any errors. I tried to load my canvas page in both Chrome and FireFox and got the same result. I am trying to embed a multiple hotspots image. I see it just fine on h5p.org, but on Canvas it only loads after refreshing multiple times or I hit the reuse/embed button.

Hi gnbradley,I just tested
I just tested this and everything works fine. Can you please double check for errors in the browser console.

Becoming Admin User in H5P
How do you become an admin user in H5P so that you can integrate H5P with CANVAS? I currently use H5P but just embed assignment using rich content editor. I want to integrate it so that CANVAS grades assignment.

Hi ckoczynski,To be able to
To be able to fully utilize H5Ps features with Canvas you need to have an H5P.com account. Please visit this page to sign up for a free trial.

How much is the H5P.com account after the 30 day free trial? I can't seem to find pricing.
Fri, 12/14/2018 - 09:21
Hi cvanwassh,Thank you for
Thank you for your interest in H5P.com. Once your free trial starts someone from H5P.com will contact you in regards to the pricing.
Fri, 01/04/2019 - 06:18
It would be helpful to know the cost before downloading the free trial. I think the service looks excellent, but I also don't want to use the time of the Canvas Admin at my University if this is something I cannot afford after the 30 day trial ends. Having been through the process of getting approval to use another program I pay for (SoftChalk), I know there is an IT process as well with privacy check, etc. Is it possible to receive information about whether an individual teacher can pay for an account, and if this is possible, the annual charge?

Hi lewisale,Currently we do
Currently we do not offer a single user license, our smalles license is for 5 authors, but we will offer single user soon. Would you like an email notification as soon as a single author license is available?
Mon, 01/07/2019 - 23:31
Thanks For Your Reply
Thanks for your reply. I am really interested in updates regarding single-author. I currently pay for a single-author for SoftChalk cloud, and I am looking at different ways to be innovative with course content...trying to keep up with the technical "times". I like the visual and interactions of your product which I think is essential for classes, especially online. Passive consumption of content definitely doesn't equal learning...appealing activities as learning tools are needed. I imagine you cannot provide me a specific date regarding the singler user, but do you think this may be offered within six months? I am just planning in my mind about the Fall 2019 semester.

Thank you for your reply.
Thank you for your reply. Single author should definitively be there within six months. You'll get an email when it is available.

Speak the Words into Canvas
Hello! I teach French and I love the "speak the words" activities in H5P. Speech recognition works quite well. However, once I embedded my H5P content into my Canvas page, it seemed like the microphone was no longer recognized even though it worked fine when I tested it directly in H5P (and I use Chrome). The button just stayed on "listening" and nothing happened. Do you know if this is a H5P or a Canvas issue? Any idea how I still could send the content I created to my students? Thanks for your help.

Hi millerjs,This is happening
This is happening because Chrome is not allowing access to the mic for cross-origin Iframes. You can read more about this here.
There is also a fix that the core team is working on but I am notsure when it will be released.

Does the H5P come with training support for admins and for faculty? If so, how much time per semester is allocated for the training?
Mon, 02/11/2019 - 13:29
Hi,It comes with access to a
It comes with access to a 24/5 help desc and a growing amount of digital training resources. We're working on setting up a global partner network so that we can offer training as well, right now we offer webinars for an extra charge so that you can specify the level of training yourself. Many organizations have very advanced H5P users already and don't want external training, others do.

In agreement with lewisale, knowing the price structure would be nice before asking my Admin to install this on our Canvas server. In fact my boss wants to know this information before anything:
Can you please email me this information swiftly as we are getting to ready to propose our budget.
Wed, 03/27/2019 - 14:27
Hi Eric,We'll be publishing
We'll be publishing pricing information on H5P.com soon. I don't want to add it here in the forum as it will be updated from time to time and we only want to update it in one place.
I've sent you the pricing information on email.
Fri, 03/29/2019 - 02:46
I am also interested in the pricing information for my institution. Can you forward me that info?

Canvas and xAPI
We are doing alot of work with our own analytics at our university. We have a 50 author/10,000 student H5P Saas licence. Do you have information on how we can extract student results through xAPI. We have some programmers and analytics expertise.

This depends on your subscription. I suggest that you send an email to [email protected].

Move the location of the video on the assignment page
Hi, I'm using H5P.com with Canvas, and I would some text to appear above and below my video on each assignment page. At the moment, when I set up an assignment, the video only appears at the end of all the text. Is it possible to move the video on the assignment page or specify some text to appear below it?

Interactive book (Alpha)
Is there a planned date for the Interactive book to be available in H5P.com
Tue, 08/13/2019 - 18:40
Hi kymschutz,I'm afraid there
I'm afraid there is no definite timeline yet. We still need to iron out some wrinkles and add a few more features to it before it can be released as a stable version.

Grades within Canvas
Which content types push the grade to Canvas? Also, would it be possible to see what an entry looks like in SpeedGrader? Thanks! :)

Are the security issues carried over?
I don't know practically anything about web development (so bear with me here), but I do know how easy it is for web developers to find the answers to H5P content. Is this still an issue when H5P is integrated into Canvas? I know how to find the client-side answers in the source code on H5P.com, but I'm having more trouble finding them in the Canvas pages with H5P content—which would be a really good thing! I just wanted to double check because I don't trust that my not being able to find the answers necessarily means that students can't cheat.

Hi uwmlrc,Backend evalutation
Backend evalutation has not been deployed. This means that it is still possible to find the answers through the code.
