Various examples of using H5P content types in university context
I'd like to share with the community some examples of using H5P content types in our so called Online Studychoice Assistants (OSA). I am working for the University of Freiburg (Germany) and these little tests are a free service to give prospective students a realistic insight into studies and specific subjects. The process can help to assess whether the subject really matches their expectations and wishes.

Quiz / Question Set with Multiple Choice

It came out that H5P is the perfect tool for our aims. We use it on a WordPress website. Some kind of special feature is that the scoring is not stored in the WP database but only in the local storage of the user's browser. It was very important for us that the tool can be used without registering needed, but to show the score points in summarized result pages nevertheless. We managed to implement this special wish with the cooperation of Oliver Tacke, to whom I would like to send another big THANK YOU for all his valuable work and support. His support was so very helpful and moreover always friendly and "educational" - helping us to get familiar with H5P and to help ourselves.
All in all H5P offers great possibilities for various kinds of interactive tasks. I appreciate the possibilty of code customization very much. I had to dive into the documentation to resolve a few issues by customization of code. For example "show solution button" for Drag and Drop or show "check button" after all draggables were dragged or the prevention of "shorten words > 20 characters" in Drag the Words and some more.
Of course it would be nice to see these workarounds implemented one day with behavioural options in the core code. :)
Thanks to everybody who is involved in the development of H5P and in further improving this great tool!
All the best,
