Supercharge Your Teaching with H5P: Creating Rich and Interactive Web Experiences for Language Learners
April 1 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0| $30
CARLA Saturday Workshop Series
Are you looking for ways to give your students media-rich, interactive assignments for homework or in-class work? This exciting workshop will explore H5P—a free online tool that makes it easy for teachers to create online activities that can easily be shared on websites, mobile devices, and course management systems.
After an introduction of the more than 25 activity types available through H5P (drag and drop, hotspot, fill in the blanks, mark words, timelines, and more), the workshop will focus on H5P’s powerful interactive video and course presentation features that allow teachers to use techniques such as branching and interactive questionnaires to foster high student engagement. Participants will learn new strategies for using H5P exercises in online, hybrid, or face-to-face courses, and will have an opportunity to try out these new tools by making an interactive video or course presentation.
Presenter: Shannon Spasova, Assistant Professor of Russian and Technology Specialist, Michigan State University with degrees in Slavic Languages and Instructional Design.
