Prevent learners from submitting their answers in the Documentation Tool


I have designed an activity using the Documentation Tool which asks learners to track their mobile app usage and reflect upon that.

Learners have the option to export this as a file, which is great, because they can keep a copy.

But they can also submit this so that we, teachers in the course, can see it. But in this case we don't want to see it, as it's for reflection only.

At the moment I cannot see an easy way for preventing them to submit it, apart from telling them not to do so.

It would be great to have a check box which hides the submit button.

Many thanks

Hi Harry,

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.

You can also add your own CSS-file to the content type. Please visit the Visual Changes page for more details. But do take note that if you add this all documentation tool content that you create will not have the button for submit.


I agree with Harry. We are wanting to do exactly the same thing and for the same reasons. It would be great to be able to configure within individual document tools exactly how you want the information to be outputted; either as submitted text, exported as a .doc or copied to the clipboard and any copmp[niatiionn of these. Checkboxes in the Display Options section of the form would be a fine place to put these as it is referring to how to display the submitted text.
