Adding Sounds to multiple buttons

I want to create quiz questions like this:

Four buttons appear, marked (say) A, B, C, D. Clicking on each of these buttons plays a sound (such as a piano chord). User can click any of these any number of times while considering which to choose. Question is "Which of the above is a major sixth?" and the user clicks the answer choice (not the sound button) A, B, C, or D.

So I need to be able to add a sound file to a button and have several of them  on one question slide.

Possible? How?

Hi Jasonkanter,

You can easily achieve what you want by using the Course Presentation activity where you can place all the necessary elements on one slide, as demonstrated on attached screen capture.

Hi again Jasonkanter,

I've attached a sample 'lesson'. Hope that helps.

Cool suggestion thanks Papi Jo!


I'm brand new to H5P and Moodle. I do have years of experience with Articulate Studio and Storyline and Adobe Captivate, all of which are now too expensive. I'm working through the tutorial on Course Presentation, and I don't yet see how to attach different sounds to four different buttons. Please help me to learn. Articulate Storyline was so much more intuitive.

Hi Jasonkanter,

There are different ways of learning how to do things. My preferred one is "learning (and teaching) by examples". This is what I suggest: download the example I posted at the end of my reply here:

and install it on your Moodle site. Then Edit it and examine the various elements it contains.

My example is a Course Presentation activity. On the first (and only) page/slide I have placed the following elements:

  • 1 multiple choice activity
  • 1 text content
  • 4 audio contents placed inside the text content

The attached screenshots show you how to view/edit each content on that page/slide.

Hope that helps...

P.S.- Since you are using Moodle you might like to ask further questions on the relevant H5P Moodle forum here:

Hi Papi Jo,

This was very useful for me. I have been struggling to find a way to create exercices with sound. I am a language teacher, an I really miss the possibility of inserting sound in a multiple choice or a gap-fill task. I never thought of using Course Presentation, but this looks really versatile . 

Thanks a lot!
