Which H5P Content can be used?

H5P content can significantly enhance LearnDash courses, making them more interactive and engaging for learners. H5P is a free and open-source authoring tool that allows you to create a wide range of multimedia content, including interactive videos, quizzes, and presentations. While you can add any type of H5P content to a LearnDash course, not all of them are able to control course progression or be used in quiz questions. To be used for these purposes, the H5P interaction must have xAPI support and be able to trigger a ‘completion event’ with a statement containing a score. The following whitelist of H5P content types have adequate xAPI support and can be used to control LearnDash course progression and quiz questions.
