About the project
There are lots of barriers for creating, sharing and reusing interactive content. There are copyright issues, technical issues, complex authoring tools and huge problems with compatibility between different types of content formats, authoring tools and publishing plattforms. H5P is breaking down these barriers.
By making it easy for professional content creators and publishers to create, maintain and reuse rich Internet content, H5P will empower creatives to create richer and better experiences more efficiently.
Who’s behind H5P?
H5P is a community driven project. Currently there are some companies that are doing the heavy lifting, and we hope to see more companies and volunteers joining us soon.
H5P Group, a company co-founded by the open source companies Amendor AS and Cerpus AS, is currently the driving force behind H5P, with a growing team of talented engineers dedicated to H5P. This team is called The H5P Core Team and has extensive experience with development and design of open source ed-tech and is located in Tromsø, Norway.
