007 H5P Example: The Chase (Live Quiz Game)

The Chase is a live quiz game exclusively available in the paid H5P.com subscriptions. In this tutorial, I will show you how to setup the game and review the steps for both instructors and participants.

Apps and Equipment

Content Customization

This content type has several color themes: purple, blue, green, yellow, red, light and dark.

It also has background music that can be enabled or disabled by the participants.

Content Type Notes

  • This content type is only supported in paid H5P.com subscriptions. It will not work in self-hosted H5P plugins for Moodle, WordPress or Drupal and is not compatible with Lumi Education apps.
  • This is a live engagement quizzing game. Although it can be used for online courses, instructors and participants must access the game at a designated time. It is not for asynchronous use.
  • Automatic passing of scores to the learning management system (LMS) grade book will work if the game is created within an assignment vs a page.
