This is the second workshop in the series; do not worry if you missed the first this is a great time to get started! By the end of this workshop you will have experience creating a course presentation in WordPress — you may even have a presentation ready to use by the end of your time with us. We will be using the H5P plugin in WordPress to make an engaging HTML5-based presentation which allows users to add images, videos, multiple choice questions, fill in the blanks, text, and other types of interactions to their presentations.

Try It Yourself!
One way to get started is by reusing an H5P content type. Download the example presentation by clicking on the Reuse link in the bottom left corner of the content. Now you can upload this file to your WordPress site by clicking H5P content then Add New.
Next, click the “Upload” tab at the top to upload an existing .h5p file. Select a file to upload and click “Use”. The editor will now load and you can start editing H5P content. Here you may edit all fields in the H5P. Saving will update the H5P as well. Use “Tutorial” and “Example” links at the top to learn more about this content type and to see some examples of usage.
Another way to get started is to create a new course presentation in WordPress. In your site activate the H5P plugin then click H5P content then Add New. Type “Course Presentation” in the Search content types text area, click Details then Use. Here you may edit all fields in the H5P. Saving will update the H5P as well. Use the “Tutorial” and “Example” links at the top to learn more about this content type and to see some examples of usage.
