Duration setting, Count-down Clock and Score Display

I propose the addition of three (conceptually-related) features: 

  • A duration/time span setting added to Hotspots, Shapes, Nav Anchors, Images etc. elements for apps such as Course Presentations, Image Hotspots, and similar apps that can also leverage these elements.   
  • Addition of a general purpose timer/countdown clock element to the editing toolkits for these apps.  The timer/countdown should be visible to learners as the time winds down.
  • Addition of a score display element, possibly borrowing from what is available in the Branching Scenarios app.  Like the countdown clock, users would ideally see a display of their correct/incorrect "score" to induce stimulate mastery/goal performance within certain content.

Benefit: Increased ability to gamify instructional content in new ways, by adding the ability to limit the duration on screen, of certain elements such as hotspots, navigation links,  images, etc,.  When used in conjunction with a visible timer/countdown clock, and score display mechanism, these features should help promote development of novel mastery/goal performance oriented content.

Hi ormjr,

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.
