New Content Type: Matching
Submitted by lernkiste on Sun, 05/21/2017 - 10:59
I would love you see a "Matching" Content Type in H5P.
In this content type, I create sets of matching information and the user can connect the correct pairs.
- Pair might be text+text (probably the easiest one to create), text+image, text+audio, etc.
I have quickly created an example image of how the content type could look like: http://imgur.com/a/LCIKA

I really like your idea! Thanks for sharing!

Last year I saw a post on twitter about you matching game LOTR. I wondered what happened to this and what needs to be done to get this from GitHub to be considered an addition to the H5P Content features.
Thanks for your continued support to the community

Hi Gideon!That content type
That content type is one of the "coolness projects" that we work on when there's time next to regular work or in our spare time. It is working quite well, but some kinks may have to be ironed out. I can't give you a date when that will be done, unfortunately. We're still hoping that more people in the community might join us with coding. If someone is interested in completing "Matching": https://github.com/h5p/h5p-matching

There are several threads on 'matching', but people seem confused about the precise type of activity.
This is about matching pairs of items. There is only one solution when each is matched with its correct partner. This is a standard recognition activity in 2nd language teaching. Plus, the puzzle aspect (only one solution) allows sts to use what they recognise/know, to solve any remaining pairs.
Simple example / critical response language (second column would be jumbled):
Homer argues / that ice-cream is beneficial to health.
Homer discusses / the benefits of ice-cream for health.
Homer's claim / that ice-cream is beneficial is unconvincing.
It was possible to create this type of interactive matching activity 10 years ago using apps like Hot Potatoes. Very simply.
This is a major gap in the H5P suite of activities. I have tried rigging Drag and Drop to do this, but it is laborious and not really fit for purpose.

Ages ago (October) I picked up on a tweet about Matching which I added as a comment to a blog post about H5P in CanvasLMS It showed a (beta version/prototype) of a Matching game involving Lord of the Rings. I contacted the designer (Ottake) shortly after this but have heard no more. I onder what happened? It looked almost good to go...!

Credit where credit is due:
Credit where credit is due: The matching game was done by Tom Arild Jakobsen, not me -- and I guess you contacted him? You can find the source code on github and it seems to be working indeed.

Installed and tested
Installed the h5p-matching activity on my local H5P/drupal test site. It works fine except for one apostrophe issue which I have reported on the H5P github.
On examining the source code I am surprised to not recognize the JS usual code that I am used to. Is this because it's a prototype or does it mean there is a new style of coding for H5P?

Hi Papi Jo!
It looks unfamiliar, because Tom used the framework Vue that makes creating user interfaces easier. https://vuejs.org/

Thanks Oliver,I'll have a
I'll have a look at Vue. My question again is: does this mean Tom used the Vue framework for prototyping h5p.matching or is this going to be the standard way of developing new h5p activities from now on? What about existing activities?

Hi glisapn!Downloading the
Downloading the archive won't give you a runnable version. Github is used for sharing the source code that developers can use to build the package as described in the readme and then they can either run it directly on a test server or you'd have to use the H5P CLI tool to build a library package.

Thank you otacke.
Since I'm not a programmer, I'm curious how I can install this content type in my wordpress site?
Mon, 12/09/2019 - 22:02
Hi glisapn!Since you're
Since you're stating yourself that you're not a developer, you probably shouldn't as this version has not been reviewed or tested - otherwise it would have been released.

Does anyone know why there is no progress in this amazing feature we all need ?

still work in progress?
Does anyone know the progress of this amazing project. When will it be ready for use ?

Hi agrigor1,I'm afraid there
I'm afraid there are no updates yet for this. As Otacke mentioned above this is a "coolness project" that the core team works on on their spare time.

size Card Matching Game
Hi there, I have used the H5p card matching game for a lesson on multimodality in Moodle, but I can't enlarge the size of the cards, they are so small that it is difficult to read and see what the content is, and therefore to play the game. In the false or wrong game you can upload content, and it can be shown in real size, is this a problem of Moodle or is there some trick to tackle this problem? I have attached a screenshot,

Counting the years
Any progress on this?

Any progress yet?
Any progress on this yet?
This really isn't a "coolness" or spare time kind of project; it's a basic necessity for developing learning objects for educational quizzing. Every few months I get a course where this is needed, and I keep coming to H5P assuming there's an option and remembering that there's not. Matching is one of the most basic types of questions in all quizzing tools, and to be able to do it visually would be a real "win" for H5P.
I'm puzzled why there hasn't been a solution in 2+ years for this basic need, yet there are lots of other new interactive types that are "cool" yet rarely and uncommonly needed.
There are other tools (like SoftChalk) which offer it, but I'd rather use H5P and our LTI integration with our LMS.

Hi WildcatTech!If you want to
If you want to use the aforementioned "Matching" content type (source code has been available right from the start), you can download the sample content from https://www.olivertacke.de/2020/08/26/h5p-inhaltstypen-die-es-noch-nicht-gibt-ii/ and upload it to your platform, but it still has not been officially released, so you will not get any support for it.
Luckily, the pedagogical principle behind "Matching" can be used with other content types, too, e. g. Drag and Drop or Drag the Words.
As to you being puzzled: H5P is an open project. There's only so much the H5P core team can do, but anyone is invited to contribute. Unfortunately, the demand for a "Matching" content type doesn't seem to have been high enough for anyone to come up with one or to raise funds to let someone create one, or ...
