Content can be created, edited, and stored from the Content Bank

  • Refer to the Tutorials for Authors in in order to learn how to create content;
  • H5P packages can be added to activities from the Content Bank;
  • The Content Bank can be found in the File Picker, like other repositories;
  • Only the H5P Package in the Content Bank counts towards you storage. H5P activities added from the Content Bank do not count towards your storage;

You can use the activity type H5P Activity to insert H5P content in your courses.

  • The H5P package can be added from the Content Bank. No extra storage will be consumed in this case;
  • Packages can also be uploaded from your computer, but they will use up storage;
