Managing your H5P Content
This page covers the basics of keeping your H5P workspace organised.
- Setting up content folders
- Copying, reusing, and cloning content
- Sharing content with others
Keeping your H5P workspace organised with folders
In H5P, you can create folders and content items. To keep things tidy from the beginning, we suggest you start by creating a folder and keep your content organised in folders and subfolders.
- Click on the "New Folder" button at the top
- Give your folder a descriptive name (e.g. Luke Skywalker's test folder, or course title)
- Click on "Create"
Cloning H5P content items
The clone function allows you to duplicate an entire H5P activity. H5P does not have version control, so this can be useful if you want to create:
- a back-up version of an activity before making significant changes.
Consider cloning, especially when working on a complex activity (e.g. branching scenario, interactive book, interactive video) and want to try out different layouts or navigational pathways.
- a safety copy of a shared activity that has several collaborators who all have editing rights for the activity. You can create a clone of that activity that only you have access to.
- a different version of an activity for a different purpose or a different groups of learners.
- Keep cloning minimal and avoid too many duplicates that are hard to keep track of.
- Consider organising clones in subfolders.
- Think about a naming convention and how to keep track of different changes and versions.
