Support » Plugin: Interactive Content – H5P » H5P is not the tool for education (language) projects unless…

  • I am forced to rate with 1 star only to encourage the developers to do better rather than for the purpose of discrediting this plugin.

    Many features and all interesting, depending on goals.

    However, the project seems to lack figures like beta testers to debug all the tools and, above all, in the most widely spoken languages that have each one their one graphic representation.

    In fact, this plugin would be great for a language education project but the gaps require a large amount of work by a developer and not all educational projects have the resources to pay a developer to “fix” all the bugs or to set up the various tools that often have a questionable layout and lack usability. Inexperienced users and smartphone users would have to struggle to use the tools H5P provides.

    I have tried some tools and each has problems that require a professional Php and CSS developer. As I have already said, a linguistic project requires a lot of time especially in the creation of educational tools, marketing activities and the creation of a site that can also be used by users with little or no experience in the use of the internet and web browser: children and people with disabilities.

    This plugin does not make online educational projects easy to build. Although it is free, the gaps are still too many to make it workable, without having to spend time learning the use of the different tools and, above all, fix bugs and modify them according to your needs.

    I recommend using a paid plugin instead of H5P: you would always have the possibility to complain and ask for support and changes in a short time.

    Nevertheless, the support given by H5P team is commendable but this is not enough to turn an open-source plugin into a powerful, useful and competitive work tool.

    Hi Marino,

    We welcome all feedback and are sad to see that you want to deter others from trying out our WordPress plugin.

    In order to better understand the issue you’ve run into would you be able to provide some more specific details? That way it will be possible for developers to target it and make a better version in the future. Keeping in mind that this is an open-source project, and components such as plugins and content types can be provided by multiple contributors and different developers.
