University projects using H5P
For news about University of Edinburgh projects and people using H5P interactive content please read our ‘H5P’ tagged blogs posts.
How accessible is H5P content?
H5P content types have all been tested against the criteria for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA support. The content types have gone through a lot of testing with various screen readers, keyboard navigation, zooming, code inspection and more.
Guidance on making your H5P content accessible
For expert advice on making sure your courses are inclusive and accessible please read the University’s Learning Technology and Accessibility webpages:
Open Education Resources (OERs) are online resources that are available for others to use to support learning. They are part of a worldwide movement to promote and support sustainable educational development – the use of the term ”OER” is attributed to a UNESCO workshop in 2002. The sharing of open educational materials is in line not only with University of Edinburgh’s mission but also with a global movement in which research-led institutions play a significant role.
The University of Edinburgh has an ‘OER policy’, which outlines the institutional position on OERs and provides guidelines for practice in learning and teaching. You can find the policy on the Academic Services, Policies page under ‘Learning and Teaching’, or link directly to the document here:
To find out more on OERs please visit the University of Edinburgh’s Open.Ed website.
Below is a small selection of H5P content types that you can play with, download, share or embed.
The Ecce Homo (Behold the Man) in the Sanctuary of Mercy church in Borja, Spain, is a fresco painted circa 1930 by the Spanish painter Elías García Martínez depicting Jesus crowned with thorns. Both the subject and style are typical of traditional Catholic art.
While press accounts agree that the original painting was artistically unremarkable, its fame derives from a good faith attempt to restore the fresco by Cecilia Giménez, an untrained elderly amateur, in 2012. The intervention reinterpreted the painting and made it look similar to a monkey, and for this reason it is sometimes known as Ecce Mono (Behold the Monkey).
Compare the painting before and after by sliding between the two images.
