Why the H5P for LearnDash plugin?

With LearnDash you you can choose from eight different question types. Single Answer, Multiple Choice, Sorting, Matching, Fill-In-The-Blank, Free Text, Survey, and Essay questions. However there is a limit to the types of interaction one can add to their LearnDash Courses.

For this reason we created the H5P for LearnDash plugin. Our plugin empowers course authors to control a user’s progression when inserting H5P content into their courses. This makes it possible for Learndash course authors to take their courses to a whole new level.
