Thanks Kim for getting your poster published. Extra points for being early!

I’ve seen and shared some of the OpenRN scenarios for a BCcampus project I am supporting where H5P is being integrated as practice problems in open textbooks in 5 discipline areas (one is on Vital Signs).

I hope you can share here some links to some of most effective examples of H5P activities are integrated with the content. And maybe some insight into what makes for a good scenario as well… what does it take to design them?

Thanks again- Open RN is such a fantastic example of open resource development and sharing.

Thank you for the positive feedback on the Open RN H5P scenarios! See the document listing our H5P branching scenarios that is continually updated as we develop new content. We will soon be adding new branching scenarios using virtual reality environments.
