Colors for Vowels


I just created this in PowerPoint, but would rather continue in H5P. LMK if there is a tool to do the following, as I describe my PowerPoint:

  1. The slide contains 12 text placeholders. The first is at the top. The next 8 are all small and aligned at the bottom of the slide.
  2. In placeholder 1 I type an entire word: HEAPING
    In placeholder 2, I type a single letter: H
    In placeholder 3, I type a single letter: E
    In placeholder 4, I type a single letter: A
    In placeholder 5, I type a single letter: P
    In placeholder 6, I type a single letter: I
    In placeholder 7, I type a single letter: N
    In placeholder 8, I type a single letter: G
  3. I delete the remaining placeholders, since I won't use them for this word.
  4. Since the objective is to help learner identify vowels, I begin with first vowel and click placeholder 3. I add an animation (type=Emphasis/Font Color), choose a bright color, and associate the animation with the specific placeholder. I repeat the process at placeholders 3 & 6.
  5. Now that the PowerPoint is ready, you start a slideshow. Slide 1 shows HEAPING spelled twice. Once at the top of the page (just for show), and again at the bottom, each letter in an individual placeholder, which looks a little wonky, spacing-wise. I ask the student to identify vowels. The student says H, I say no. Student says E, I say 'very good' and I click the individual E. Its color changes from black to the bright color. And so on...

Thank you for your advice. I love H5P and prefer to use it, if I can. Moreover, I am experienced with PowerPoint, but it took WAY too long to create 8 little slides this evening. It's not the right tool for the job.

Hi Roni,

It's not exactly the same however you can use Course Presentation or Quiz (Question Set) then place Mark the Words inside them. I created 2 sample contents for you:


i'll dive deep and experiment with the 2 you suggeste
