Purpose

This course covers Wordpress, a widely used blogging platform as well as H5P which enables the easy creation of rich and interactive web content. Combined together these tools can assist the creation of simple yet appealing online courses.

The course starts with a basic introduction to e-learning followed by a thorough presentation of Wordpress and H5P and how to bind them together to easily build a small e-learning platform.

This course is appropriate for classroom teachers of every school level. No prior knowledge required.

Topics such as installation and setup of Wordpress, creating posts and pages, managing users, setting and configuring the how it looks, managing plugins (H5P plugin, forum plugin), installing H5P and content creation using H5P (interactive videos, assignments) will be covered.

Through hands-on activities participants will end up in creating their own complete wordpress website containing the learning path of a course and educational resources using H5P, achieving a sufficient level of expertise in Wordpress and H5P that will help them start using those tools to easily create their own online courses.
