H5P Updates

Hi folks!

Back from a little traveling hiatus and I wanted to share some quick notes about the MP2 updates to the H5P plugin in Moodlerooms.


1) Grades Support Enhanced.

Originally the H5P activity had a somewhat mysterious internal setting for the grade it would publish to the grade book in Moodle. Now it has more normal support for grades in the settings with the addition of a field for the Maximum grade for the activity.

Still missing in my opinion is the ability to assign scales, single or multiple attempts, the aggregation methods for those multiple attempts, and the grade category the item belongs in. These are standard Moodle activity behaviors and I expect they will show up someday, but for now I have a much more normal workflow to setting up the max grade for the activity.


2) Backup and Restore.

That's right, back up and restore now work correctly with this activity so when you create one in a template course, you can count on it rolling out to the copies made of that course. I've tested it and it does work for the scenarios I ran through, including import, duplicate, and the recycle bin.

Please let me know if you find one where it doesn't seem to be working right.


There were also some fixes and updates and tweaks to various content types in the H5P plugin. Go explore and share some of what you have done, especially since you can back it up now!

I'll be back within the week to show off some steps in creation of content and some backups of sample files.
