H5P YouTubeI recently posted about a new tool to create platform agnostic elearning interactions at H5P – interactive elearning tool with HTML5 and Javascript. In a continuation from this, I wanted to see how easy it was to create interactive video’s based on a YouTube link.

Recently I also discovered a free tool called mysimpleshow which is a great tool for creating simple explainer videos. I created a simple video and uploaded to YouTube based on Adult’s are more results driven, goal oriented, and practical.

I’ve now taken this video and was able to add it to H5P (no need to upload, just add the link and it will grab  the video) and was able to add some simple interactions as layers over the top.


This took about 30 minutes to prepare and create. You can see the final results in H5P below:


I’ll continue investigating the features of H5P and post my findings – have to say, this is a very cool tool for elearning!
