How to create H5P with Content bank?

Digital strategies for interactive H5P:

H5P is a powerful tool to turn a relatively flat lesson into an engaging and interactive experience. It can be used for quiz questions, graphics with hot spots, moving content and more. There are numerous interactive content types already available through H5P. Plus, there is a community of creators making new tools and sharing them. You can also turn to that active community whenever you need help. H5P can be used with Moodle with a minimal amount of initial setup time. Then, you can create and manage your interactive content with ease.

For summative assessment, such as exams, it is recommended for security reasons to use the Quiz activity rather than H5P.
