Please change Colors used to show correct answers in exercises

I have helped create some beginner exercises for a Hindi language course using H5P - so I am familiar with some aspects of this useful program. And I am also studying the same Hindi course as well - so I have some perspective from the student’s point of view.

I would like to request a change in the colors for displaying a correct answer in the exercises - all the exercises. I have not looked at every single type of exercise available in this program so I am not sure if this applies to all of them.

There are 2 forms of correct answers as far as I know. And one form of wrong answers.

#1: At present when I click the CHECK button, if I get a sentence wrong, the correct answer appears next to it in DARK GREEN TYPE - that is fine.

#2: But if MYANSWER is a correct answer (in a fill in the blank exercise for example) my answer appears in GREENTYPE with a GREEN BACKGROUND. The green color as a background is fine BUT having the text also in green type makes it virtually impossible or nearly impossible for the student to easily read their own answer again to reconfirm their answer. I am a beginner in Hindi and I am not a confident learner. When I do get a RIGHT/CORRECT answer, I need to/must reread that answer again and again to confirm that I wrote the correct grammatical structure as a review or study method, but it is hard when the background is Green and the font is the same Green color.

I think I am speaking for many students when I say that doing an exercise is not always an automatic or easy activity. I puzzle over each sentence as I do them, and then later with the answers checked, reread them all to review and reconfirm before moving on. Often I will do the same exercise several times. So being able to easily read those correct answers is important. It would be much easier if when MY ANSWER is the correct answer, the background is in GREEN but the font should be BLACK. Having the font in BLACK would make it so much easier to reread the sentence (or numbers in the case of math).

#3 Wrong answers appear with a red/pink background with a red/pink font. I believe the font should be in BLACK here too. A red background is fine.

(I would like to add that my photo EXAMPLE is highly enlarged. The actual size of the text is MUCH SMALLER.)

Hi Pammellam,

A very good point and thank you for contributing your ideas on how to make H5P better! We’re now working on something called the H5P supporter program allowing the H5P community to vote for and fund the top voted H5P features. Also there are developers in the community who every now and then works on a feature they find interesting or useful.

Hi Pammellam,

is this a screenshot of an iOS device? I've noticed that there are issues with input elements that are 'disabled' in iOS and the green color.

As per Pamella's email yes this is on an Ipad.
