Open Education Resources are more that just textbooks. It’s also the content associated with classes. But to do anything more complicated than text can feel like it requires a certain amount of technical skills. But luckily that’s not quite the case. Thanks to H5P you can make (and share) interactive electronic presentations, quizzes, and games. Right now H5P works with WordPress, Moodle, and Drupal (but the development team is looking into other platforms). Or you can host your content on their site. You can allow users to download your content as H5P files, making it very easy to share.

You can see all of your content options here. The site also has a quiz-creation tutorial to get you started. And if you’re interested, the entire codebase is available on GitHub.

Anyone looking to make OER content more engaging and interactive should spend some time with H5P. It makes sharing and creating content simple.
