A new content type - "Word Cloud"

I'd like to suggest a new content type - "Word Cloud"

Word Cloud is a data visualization technique, used for representing text data, in which the size of each word indicates its frequency. 
The content type would be a collaborative one - it would have a text input field for users to type in their words, and a display area showing the Word Cloud.
It would be dynamic – it would change with every new entry.


It could be used in class or in an online course as an introduction to a new topic – to assess student's prior knowledge of the topic. For example the students may be asked "When you think of topic X – what words com to mined – add them to the word cloud"
It could also be used as a form of a survey (the size of each word indicates the item's popularity – this could be a base for discussion…


I hope you consider this content type


Thank you

Hi vatat!

Currenty, collaborative content types are not possible with H5P. An interface that will allow such content types is on the horizon, cmp. the roadmap (Multiplayer session APIs), but may only become available for H5P.com, not for the self-hosted version of H5P.


Thank you for the quick reply
my intention was to use the word cloud in a moodle course
The Multiplayer session APIs sounds like an interesting initiative  - I'll be sure to follow it!

Hi vatat,

FYI H5P.com integrates with Moodle seemlessly.
