Removing Summary from interactive video

I find the summary to be a confusing element in an interactive video and would like the ability to disable it. I feel that I would rather have all questions in the interactive video to share the poster format instead, for example.  While I recognize the summary option is well intended I would like to be able to choose to disable it, and others can use it as they prefer, naturally.

Hi jburwell,

The can be skipped all together and thus disabling it.


How does the summary get "skipped all together"?

I just removed all "Summary task" items in the Interactive Video demo form to see if that would cause the summary (*) icon to go away and it does not change anything.

Some time ago, you had posted a response on how to remove the summary task form an H5P interaction, however, todoy the objects/controls/indicators you mention do not exist in order to acheive this. Your instructions are no longer inline with the product.

My use case is that I have 2 H5P interactions in a page whereas I want only the second one to send a passed/completed xAPI statement, so removing the summary task from the first one will stop the passed/completed statement to be sent since the triggering Submit button will not be there, while still recording the questions/answers in the interaction.

How is this accomplished today in H5P interactions?

Hi dennishall,

What I meant was not to create a summary. Although when you go there it shows that the fields are "required" you can opt not to place anything in them.

In regards to the Submit Screen I created a quick recording showing how I removed the submit screen for the "Smoothie" sample IV.


I tried the technique that you use in the video, but somehow it still there. Is there any alternative on disabling it?

HI marcelbonar,

Would you mind attaching your content here so that I can check?


I am using Lumi, but BV52's suggestion is not working.

I try another way to avoid it, that is, when editting the summary task, regarding the "Display at" setting, I set the value to -1 (Number of seconds before the video ends).

seems working on Moodle.
