one more h5p template – Accordions

Alrighty. If you liked the Glossary/Terminology h5p template, and you thought the Tab h5p template was ok, I’ve got a new one for you. My goal here was to set up an “Accordion” – style interaction, mimicking similar types of expand and collapse tools all the cool kids are using today. As I mention in the template, h5p does have a content-type for this, but you can’t customize it (well, not without getting into the code).

So, the new template looks like this:

Go have a look – – download a copy for yourself and make something cool. Let me know what you come up with.

another h5p template – Tabs!

Thanks for the positive responses from my previous post. Sharing another template today. This one’s simpler, and probably easier to work with. This one is designed to have a Tab menu, so that you create a familiar and cohesive interface for the “sub pages”.

I’m excited to share the first of hopefully a few h5p templates for you to reuse, remix, and redistribute. I put this together for a current project, and I’ve removed any specific content or references from this downloadable version.

You can access the template, and download a copy at:

Let me know if this is helpful. I’m super excited about the potential of h5p. I’d love to hear about your use, so reach out if you want to chat more.

The (Personal) (Business) Impact of Open


Over the next couple days, I’ll be participating in the 12th Annual Open Education Conference #OpenEd15: The Impact of Open. It’s a conference I’ve always wanted to attend, but for various reasons haven’t been able to make it happen. This year, we’ll make it work.

For folks at home, tune in to the live stream keynotes, and a rich twitter stream. Expect to hear some of the most forward-thinking learning professionals discussing how open open educational resources (OER) can dramatically improve the quality of education. At the risk of telling you what you should do, don’t miss it.

Since starting my consulting business 2 years ago, I’ve had the good fortune to work on a number of open educational projects. I’ve just “run the numbers”, as some of them say. Here’s where my income comes from:

What if you could rebuild the University from the ground up?

Some inspiration from from Michael Wesch:

Wait for the punchline at the end.


Excellent summary from @davecormier. We’ll need to know about this, for later discussion:

You can choose what you do, how you participate and only you can tell in the end if you’ve been successful. Just like real life.”
