H5P Con 2020 Call for papers

Dear community member,

We urge you to participate in the H5P Conference 2020 by submitting your proposals.

The H5P community is global and growing exponentially. We started out with the first H5P Conference under the northern lights in Tromsø, Norway where some of the most eager members of the H5P community met and spent three days together. It was exhilarating and got us all fired up and wanting for more. The second H5P Conference was on the other side of the world in Melbourne, Australia where community members for the first time participated in the program with 40 amazing sessions inspiring each other on how to make the best possible content and integrate it in the best possible ways.

We now plan to hold the next H5P Con in Wisconsin, USA, at University of Wisconsin, Madison.

The H5P Conference 2020, to be held from 18-20 May in Madison, Wisconsin USA is the first H5P Conference in North America and has the potential to become the largest and most vibrant gathering of H5P community members ever!
The H5P core team will be very much present in the program. In Melbourne, we made the largest release announcement ever for H5P, and we hope to eclipse it with what we will launch in Madison. We intend to introduce features that will change the world of interactive content forever making H5P Con 2020 a historic event in a major way.

Creative Builder LabContent creators showing off their best content and how they built it. Participants will learn how to master the many H5P content types and are encouraged to bring their own PC and follow along.
Research and Data Driven Teaching and LearningResearchers present the results of their findings as to how H5P and interactive content in general impacts learning, teaching and how content should be built and used according to research development.

These sessions will delve deeper at the troubleshooting, integration/acceptance of OER, issues with any licensing, administrative and support concerns.
