H5P Sharing and Collaboration

H5P learning objects can be shared and used amongst staff members at Victoria University. By selecting the Collaborators or Sharing option, other staff members teaching the same unit can use and edit the H5Ps you have created for the unit. Additionally, other staff members from all faculties can view and clone your created H5P learning object and modify it for their teaching.
