H5P as a quiz question type in Moodle

falcon's picture

I received the following from emdalton, putting it here so that people can(soon) vote for this feature:

  • Examples: https://moodle.org/plugins/browse.php?list=category&id=29
  • Developer documentation: https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Question_types
  • Specific example to review for development: https://github.com/moodleou/moodle-qtype_ddwtos

I see this being particularly helpful with your existing "Questions" activities.

This will allow statistics on questions to be gathered and analyzed by Moodle. There are also many features in Moodle that can be based on quiz results, so the value of this integration would be very high.

The moodle community would love to see a number (if not all) H5P activities have the ability to be added as "Moodle Quiz Question Types" as mentioned above. This would give Moodle educators the ability to add different types of H5P questions into a single quiz, as well as the have the flexibility to vary question values and other "moodle quiz" variables. Thanks in advance, Richard Wallace

Hi Richard,

Thank you for the input, we'll definitey take note of these.


Yes great idea. So now when I place a question in for example an interactive video, the question could be saved in the question bank of Moodle in order to be re-used in a quiz later. Would really spare some time.

Hi dewebmeester,

Thank you for the input. In the meantime you can now use a copy/paste option built into H5Ps so that you can copy/paste across contents that you created.


Thanks for your reply but think this is not exactly what I was thinking about. I am making the interactive video's in a Moodle environment en placing interactions from within Moodle. So I define the questions in Moodle and would like to see this questions end up in the Moodle Question bank in order to reuse the questions in for example a quiz. Thanks.

Hi dewebmeester,

You are definitely correct. The copy/paste option that was added is contained within the H5P editor and does not include any interaction with the Moodle Question Bank. 


Making h5p part of the question bank sounds like a key step forward for both Moodle and H5P! But if there were fewer question types available in the Question bank, we should still be able to access ALL h5p features through a core Moodle activity type, or the plugin. 

  • Add H5P questions in the Quiz question bank
  • Maintain the separate H5P activity plugin 

I also would like to voice my support for being able to add h5p questions to Moodle quizzes.

Considering the original post is 2 years old, just wondering if any progress or plans have been made on this initiative?

H5P questions and Moodle quiz questions are totally different, and there is no way they can be used together inside a Moodle quiz.
