How to create H5P Game Code and access it from your devices

An H5P Game Code is a unique 7-digit code that allows participants to access H5P activity (The Chase, Word Cloud, Multi-poll and Emoji Cloud) directly from their mobile devices, without signing in or accessing VU Collaborate space.

How to enable Game Code on H5P activity?

By default, H5P activity will be set as Protected and only available to the owner and the collaborators. To enable the Game Code feature, your H5P activity must be Public

Follow one of the methods below to modify the settings:

Method 1:

In your editing mode, scroll down to the bottom.
Click on the Publish tab, then select Public.

Where can I find an H5P Game Code?

Once you have created your activity, you can find the game code located within the game settings. 

You would need to have the owner or H5P collaborator access to see the game code.
If you cannot locate the game code, or don't have access to your teaching H5P activities, contact the activity owner or unit convenor to grant access.
