Textual tutorial - Example
Here's the Dialog cards we'll create in this tutorial:
When to use Dialog cards
Dialog cards can be used as a drill to help learners memorize words, expressions or sentences. Dialog cards provide a prompt on one side of the card, and a corresponding answer on the other side.
Dialog cards are often used in language learning for drilling words and expressions. Dialog cards can also be used to present math problems or help learners remembering facts such as historical events, formulas or names.
Step 1: Topic
We're going to make a set of Dialog cards where the learners can drill themselves in berry genus names. Below is the text we'll use:
- Arandanos - Blueberries
- Frambuesas - Raspberries
- Fresas - Strawberries
- Guindas - Cherries
- Grosellas rojas - Redcurrants
We'll present the Spanish berry names first, and ask the user to translate the berry names in English.
Step 2: Creating Dialog cards
Select the New content option and choose Dialog Cards from the list of Content types:
Step 3: Dialog cards editor
The Dialog cards editor should now appear. The top part of the editor looks like this:
In this tutorial we'll focus on creating the Dialog card content. We'll therefore focus on the parts of the editor above the Common fields header.
The Dialog cards editor consists of a Title, a Heading, a Mode, a Task description and a set of Dialogs.
Step 4: Title
The Title will be displayed to the learner throughout the set of cards. Type the following text in the Title field:
Learn Spanish berry names
Step 5: Task description
In this field we can give elaborate instructions to the learner. The Task description is displayed throughout the entire set of cards, below the Title. Insert the following text:
Translate the berry names from Spanish to English. Turn the card when you are ready to see the answer.
Step 6: Dialogs
Press the Add dialog button to add the card.
You should now have something like this:
On this first card, we'll display the spanish word 'Arandanos' on the front side of the card with relevant image and audio and ask the learner to translate it to English
Insert the following text in the Text field:
In the Answer field, we provide the correct answer. Add the english translation in the Answer field:
Insert the following image under Image field and the audio file under Audio files. Image and Audio files are optional.
Now we've finished creating the first card of the Dialog Cards.
Your editor will look like this:
Step 7: Adding more cards
We can add four more cards by following the same procedure as in Step 6.
You can add as many cards as you want. You remove cards by pressing the button in the top right corner of the Card. You change the order of the cards by pulling the button in the tabbed list of cards to the left of the Card editor.
Step 8: Finishing up
By now you should have ended up with something like this:
Save the node/article when you're satisfied to view your final set of Dialog cards.
You should now have the same result as the example on top of this page.
Feel free to leave any comments or suggestions on how to improve this tutorial.

I have several cards which I could use within several sets. In grammar-courses the whole content of lesson 1 could be part of lesson 2, so the students would have a "all-over-grammar"-set at the end of the course. But it is really tiring work to retype and retype all those terms again and again.
Is there a way (or: Could there be a way) to avoid this and to "copy" cards to another set?
Tue, 06/26/2018 - 06:19
Hi Rhaenar,I'm afraid there
I'm afraid there isn't a way to copy the cards. Although you can download the content and upload it when creating a new content type. This way you have a duplicate of the original activity and you can just edit it. I know it's not exactly what you need but at least you do not have to start from scratch. Furthermore if you are creating the content in H5P.org there is an option to clone the content which does the same thing only much faster.

Is there a way to add hyperlinks to the card
Is there any way to add either hyperlinks to a card of the current cardset (e.g. jump from the definition for "agriculture" to the definition of "soil", or to a external website for further reading (e.g. to wikipedia or any other website)?

No audio on second round?
During the first round with 5 cards in the deck, the audio plays fine, but on the second round if I click on the audio icon it doesn't play. This happens on Moodle 3.6 and Wordpress.

the text in the Dialog Cards
the text in the Dialog Cards always appear centered even when choosing left/right justified in the text editor.
The text in the dialog cards should be aligned with the feature in the text editor. If I choose left aligned in the text editor, the text should also appear left aligned in the card.
Thank you for making this adjustment.

Let's suppose I have a flash card with 20 questions.
Suppose the student want to work only 10 questions. There should be a button allowing to stop the session and get the results of that session. In the current version there is no way to end before reaching the last question in the flash card

Dialog cards cards with "I got it"
Let's suppose I have a dialog card with 20 cards.
I the first round I got 5 questions right.
The next time I stard the dialog cards those should not appear any more. Is these the way it works now?

Colors for font
In the dialog cards there is no possibility to have some fonts in a different color.
Would it be possible to add this feature?
Thu, 07/18/2019 - 19:15
Hi patite,Thank you for
Thank you for reporting the alignment issue. There is an existing bug report and you can follow the progress here.
For the requests would you mind posting them in the Feature Request forum.

Text and buttons being cut off
I noticed that the text on the card as well as the button are being cut off when I turn the cards. This is happening in your preview above as well as the one I made on my Moodle page. This looks like a bug to me. Please let me know.

Hi Sumant,Thank you for
Thank you for reporting this. I am unable to replicate the issue you mentioned above. I suggest that you post this issue in the "Bugs in Content Type" forum and follow the suggested information needed.

I think I saw your other post with a screenshot ;-) . Tutorials and other documentation does not allow users to post screenshots in an effort to keep it as tidy as possible.

I wanted to insert a picture but I can't.
The system does not allow me to choose the image.
Could you fix this problem?

Audio on the flip side?
Is there a way to have the audio on the answer side? This would allow a written question on the front side and a spoken and written answer on the back side.

Hi garynew,Quick tip, if
Quick tip, if there is a feature that is not available in a certain content type it's best to post the request/question in the Feature Request forum. Also there is a existing request for this feature here.

Add image to answer textarea
Is there an easy method of changing the textarea for the "Answer" to allow for images?

Hi trevorjames,The only way
The only way so far is to make changes to the code.

What file type does it accept for images?
Hello Trying to add the optional image file but PNG, GPJ and GIF all get File type isn't allowed.- It would be great to know which file types are allowed and have that mentioned whilst using the tool - thanks
Thu, 07/23/2020 - 19:14
Hi Claudia247,I think this is
I think this is related to this thread. To summarize H5Ps do not accept files with extensions in upper case changing the file extension should resolve the issue. As for the file types most H5Ps that lets tyou upload images accepts jpg and png.

Audio in answer card
I just observed that in the tutorial video (time code: 0:18) the answer card got audio option. I think this option is not yet there as an option while authoring this content type.

Hi telugu,This option has
This option has been available for some time now.

audio for answer card?
Thanks for the reply, sorry did not understand...yes audio can be added to the first card, so it displays even in second card too?
Thu, 05/13/2021 - 19:28
Hi telugu,Ahuh! Yes you are
Ahuh! Yes you are correct, I apologize for some reason the "the answer card" did not register when I was reading your question. Anyway thank you for pointing this out and I will reach out to the web admin to fix the video.

Thanks in advance.

I am trying to use the text and Answer options to display some equation. While editing it takes the formula as I copied from MS Word and pasted, but when viewing it displays as normal text. How to make it visible as it is showed in the editor.
Wed, 05/12/2021 - 19:29
Hi telugu,You should check
You should check this page with regards to mathematical equations. Also it is not advisable to create the text outside of the H5P editor like Word. Copy/Pasting from another software includes formatting and can cause unwanted behavior with the contents.

I'm using dialogue cards to present a number of important definitions. In other e-learning authering tools it is possible to present all the cards in one and not in an array, so that the learning can choose which card she is interested in.
Is it possible to present the dialogue cards not in an array of cards but all presented together? And if not, is there another H5P tool I can use for that?
Thanks a lot for your help!
Fri, 02/04/2022 - 17:25
Hi Nienkeboogaard,This may be
This may be possible by using a different content type however you have to provide additional information on how you would like the content to behave once a card has been chosen.
Mon, 02/07/2022 - 12:50
Hi, thank for your quick reply.
Basically I just want to present on one side a definition and on the other side the explanation of the definition that becomes visible once clicking on it. Im using H5P in Brightspace.
Looking forward for your help!
Mon, 02/07/2022 - 12:53
Hi, Thanks for your reply. Basically I want to present a set of definitions. On the front I present the definition and on the back the explanation that becomes visible once clicking on it.

The math is completely wrong.
The math is completely wrong. Set the parameters and keep track of right and wrong answers. There's something wrong in the programming. I tested it. It will say you got a card right twice in a row, when I kept track and didn't get that card right twice in a row. The max proficiency level in Behavioural settings, if set to 4, will really be 3. And if set to 5, will really be 4.
Tue, 03/15/2022 - 06:11
The programming math is wrong
If you keep track of your cards, you'll find that it says you got a card right twice in a row, when you did not. And if you set 'max proficiency level' in behavioural settings to 3, it's really 2. If you set it to 4, it's really 3.

Thank you for pointing that out.
I've made an issue for correcting this: https://h5ptechnology.atlassian.net/browse/HFP-3502
Thu, 03/17/2022 - 05:15
Thanks. I think before I was
Thanks. I think before I was thinking "number right in a row" whereas I think it's "the number right, but not in a row." I do know that if you click "allow quick progression" it adds them up differently than it should. I would make three choices and then on a piece of paper keep track of round 1, round 2 etc. So I made:
CARD 1: 11=onze
CARD 2: 12=douze
CARD 3: 13=treze
and then would have a correct and wrong column for each round in a hand drawn table on a piece of paper to keep track.

more than one audio file
I see that I can add more than one audio file. But what's the use? I can't find my second audiofile anywhere in the quiz..
My idea: Front of card is 1 word with audio of pronunciation. Back of card is translation and example sentence with the word. I would like to add the audio of that sentence there...
