Adding Find the hotspot

Just wondering, is there any way to build a question set using Find the hotspot. It is a good content type to build educaitonal system for small children where they can make the selection. Course presentation currently does not allow to add Find the hotspot content. 

On another note, is there any way to enable fullscreen for question set similar to a feature available in Course Presentation. 



Supporter votes Members of the Supporter Network can vote for feature requests. When the supporter network has generated sufficient funding for the top voted feature request it will normally be implemented and released. More about the H5P Supporter Network

Hi oraxperts,

These are very good suggestions. I have moved this thread to the Feature Request Forum.


Thanks, It would be nice to have this included in Course presentation if possible. I know it is currently not supported to include Find the hotpot in Course presentation but is there any workaround or hook that we can use to add Find the hotspot in the Course presentation?

Hi Harish,

A hook cannot be used for this purpose. There needs to be changes in the code of CP for it to tap into the Find the Hotspot libraries.


Having find the hotspot in Question set is certainly what i (i mayby others) need. I hope it can be done in the near future. Already have some ideas about how to use it. :)

Hi mitchz,

Thank you for your input. Furthermore we’re now working on something called the H5P supporter program allowing the H5P community to vote for and fund the top voted H5P features. Also there are developers in the community who every now and then works on a feature they find interesting or useful.


I think it would be realy useful the have find the hotspot added to question set. It would make this now (for me) underused content type much more useful. Is there a way to find out who made that content type, so i can ask the developer about it?

Hi Christian,

Both Find the Hotspot and Question Set were both created by the core team. You can directly contact them through our contact form.

Hi there,

I just bumped in to this thread after searching with the same question in mind. (is it possible to add find hotspots to question set?)
This topic seems a little old, but is there any news if this great addition will be made possible in the feature? Otherwise i hope maybe a developer picks this up. :)

Hi jurre,

We haven't received any pull requests for this or any indication that someone is working on this. Personally I agree that hotspots is a great addition to Quiz.



I am an instructor at a community college and also work in the eLearning Support Dept.  I know that for training purposes, the ability for Instructional Designers to use the Find the Hotspot(s) option would be a very powerful addition to the Interactive Videos and also the Presentation activities.  Basically, anywhere it can be integrated would be great.  This feature alone allows Instructional Designers to build instructional content that starts to parallel Adobe Captivate and Articulate Storyline abilities (see screenshot and imagine a series of pages and clicks necessary to complete a desired task). If you could start dipping into that user pool then it could be financially advantageous.  Hopefully, this information can bump the prioritization up on this feature request.  If you would like to discuss further, please let me know.



I very much agree. If we could pause an intearctive video and ask students to click a hotspot area that would be a huge functionality.
