Adding a timeline using H5P

Tags h5p Moodle

The H5P plugin is an easy way to add visually appealing, and easy to use content on Moodle. The Timeline content type allows you to place a sequence of events in a chronological order. For each event you may add images and texts. You may also include assets from Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Vimeo, Google Maps and SoundCloud.

For more information, go to the H5P website: 

1. Go to the Moodle course you would like to edit and click "Turn editing on" by clicking on the gear at the top right of the page.

2. Under the topic where you would like to add H5P, click "Add an activity or resource". 

3. A new window will open. Scroll down and choose "Interactive content" and then click "add". 

4. A new page will load and now you can choose which H5P feature you would like to use (in this case we will choose Timeline). If the H5P feature is not available, simply click the white and blue button on the right called "Get". A new page will load. Click "Install". Once the content has successfully downloaded, click "Use"

5. Add a Headline (title) and optional background image to your timeline. 

6. Scroll down and add a date and its description:

(Optional) Under asset, you can add videos, images, etc

7. Click "Add item" to add another date. 

8. Once you have added the dates. Click save.
