Where is content stored?

jaxstar's picture

Hello there,

Loving H5P so far. Hopefully this isn't a stupid question - but I can't find the answer in the documentation or on the forums. Is content created with plugins stored on the host site e.g. Moodle, or is it created/stored on the h5p site?

I'm presuming it's stored inside the VLE,  but it'snot actually stated anywhere. And if it is inside the VLE where in the data / file strucutre is content located?

Many thanks,

Jacqui

Hi Jacqui!

If you create content here on h5p.org, it is obviously stored here.

If you use a plugin for Drupal, moodle or WordPress, then your content is stored on the server that those host environments are running on.

  • On WordPress, the files of content and content libraries can be retrieved from the respective folders in .../wp-content/uploads/h5p.
  • On Drupal, the files of content and content libraries can be retrieved from the respective folders in .../sites/default/files/h5p.
  • On moodle, as far as I know, it's not that simple to tell because of the way moodle handles files.

On top of the content and content libraries, you also have the plugin files itself and "the core" at some other places, and you also have some data stored in the host systems database.

Best,
Oliver

Another question in the same area. 

Does it mean that if I have installed the moodle plugin then all the information is stored on the moodle site as well? Does it mean that if I work off-line with my moodle site the plugin and the activities will still work.

Hi alexstrinda,

Yes and Yes! All the information are stored in your Moodle site the only time the plugin communicates with the server is when checking and downloading updates.

Hi! I can't seem to find the answer to this. I've been using h5p succesfully but I don't know how to see what my students wrote in my Moodle site when the activity is an open answer...  Basically: where can I see what they wrote?

Hi vickirush,

Would you mind telling us specifically which content type are you using would it be Essay, Documentation Tool, Free Text question in Interactive Video to name a few?

Hi, tyhanks for the promt reply... the truth.. everything youn mentioned above hehe... Turns out I've discovered h5p and I'm a big fan! If I have to choose the one I use the most is Documentation Tool and Interactive Video... I checked with my Moodle server guy and they don't have LRS service... so I don't know where to go from there...

Hi vickirush,

In the Documentation Tool you need to make sure that users clicks on 'Submit' in the export page. In Free Text within Interactive Video, the user needs to click on the 'Submit' button in the submit screen. In Moodle you don't need a separate LRS since it already has its built in Gradebook.

Thanks for your reply, I'll do a trial run and see if works properly ;)

I tested it and it works!!! You guys are life savers!!! By the way I'm promoting h5p everywhere I can. If I'd like to collaborate translating to Spanish (there are a few mistakes on the existing translations) and translate new ones... how can I do it? Love to help out!

Hi vickirush,

Thank you for your interest in contributing to translating H5Ps.

You can check this documentation for more information on how to contribute translations.

Gracias :-)

I have been using h5p.org for a while now to create assets for my courses. I was told by a colleague that the free version (h5p.org) is a "sandbox" space and that it gets wiped out on occasion? Is using h5p.org (free) a safe space for my content or do I run the risk of it being deleted? I like that h5p.com has additional functionality, but don't have a budget at this time to purchase it (although hoping perhaps in the future!).

Hi ecbaker,

Actually we don't delete the contents in H5P.org and no plans to delete them in the near future. However we discourage using it for 'real' contents. To provide a best possible experience for new users and to ensure that people use H5P.org only for trying out H5P (we've had more traffic than our server can handle lately, ref also the warnings when you create content, embed content and view the content) we are experimenting with which content types should be available here.

Check the getting started page for information on how you can use all the content types and use H5P for real. We unfortunately are not able to provide free hosting, only free software :)

Hi Gulfam,

As far as I know, Safari does not support the ogg file format. I am not 100% sure though since the last time I tried was about 2 years ago.

Hi all!

You are correct, BV! I doubt Apple will ever ship codecs for ogg or webm.
