Creating an H5P Word Cloud & Emoji Cloud activity

For instructions on how to find and create H5P Learning Objects in your space, please see Introduction to H5P

On this page:

 

Option One: Creating the Word Cloud activity


A Word Cloud is a collection, or cluster of words depicted in different sizes that indicate its frequency or importance. When a word is mentioned more frequently within a given set of text data, the bigger or bolder the word will appear in a Word Cloud. The Word Cloud H5P tool can be used to conduct a poll in which users can either select or type in a response.

See our example here: WordCloud Word Cloud
