How Smart Import from H5P Can Transform Membership Associations’ Educational Offerings

In today’s fast-paced, digitally-driven world, membership associations face the challenge of keeping their educational offerings engaging and effective. Enter H5P’s new Smart Import feature, a game changer for creating interactive and compelling courses that enhance student engagement and retention. This blog post explores how this innovative tool, already used by many associations and Enovation clients within Moodle LMS, can benefit membership associations in creating educational experiences that resonate with their members.

What is H5P?

H5P (HTML5 Package) is an open source platform that allows educators to create, share, and reuse interactive content such as videos, quizzes, presentations, and games. It integrates seamlessly with various learning management systems (LMS), including Moodle, providing a versatile and user-friendly environment for content creation.

Introducing Smart Import

The new Smart Import feature by H5P, available through as a SaaS offering, takes content creation to the next level. This functionality enables users to import existing content seamlessly, allowing for quick adaptation and enhancement with interactive elements. Here’s how this feature can benefit membership associations.

1. Streamlined Content Creation with AI

Creating educational content from scratch can be time consuming and resource intensive. Smart Import simplifies this process by leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) to automatically enhance existing materials. This means that valuable content doesn’t go to waste but can be revitalised and made more engaging through interactive elements such as:

  • Interactive videos
  • Branching scenarios
  • Drag-and-drop activities
  • Interactive timelines

By streamlining content creation with AI, associations can focus more on enhancing the learning experience rather than spending excessive time on the production phase.

2. Enhanced Member Engagement

Interactive content is a proven way to boost engagement. Traditional passive learning methods often fail to capture and maintain the learner’s attention. However, with Smart Import, existing content can be transformed into interactive modules that encourage active participation. For instance:

  • Embedding quizzes within videos to test comprehension in real-time.
  • Creating interactive presentations where members can engage directly with the material.
  • Utilising branching scenarios to simulate real-life decision-making processes.

These features, powered by AI, not only make the learning process more engaging but also help in better retention of information.

3. Improved Retention Rates

Engagement is closely tied to retention. When members find the learning process enjoyable and relevant, they are more likely to complete courses and remain active participants within the association. Interactive content created with H5P’s Smart Import can lead to:

  • Higher completion rates for courses.
  • Increased satisfaction with the educational offerings.
  • A stronger sense of community and value derived from the association.

By improving retention rates, associations can ensure that their members continue to renew their memberships and participate in ongoing educational opportunities.

4. Cost-Effective Solution

Developing interactive content in-house or through external vendors can be costly. Smart Import offers a cost effective solution by allowing associations to repurpose existing materials. This not only reduces the cost associated with content creation but also maximises the return on investment for previously developed content. Importantly, the subscription to for Smart Import is much less than the annual subscription to Articulate Storyline, making it an attractive option for budget-conscious organisations.

5. Easy Integration and Accessibility

One of the standout features of H5P and its Smart Import functionality is the ease of integration with existing LMS platforms, such as Moodle. Membership associations can seamlessly incorporate interactive content into their current systems without any technical hurdles. Additionally, H5P’s commitment to accessibility ensures that all members, regardless of their abilities, can benefit from the enhanced learning experiences.

The Smart Import feature from H5P is a powerful tool that can significantly enhance the educational offerings of membership associations. By transforming existing content into interactive and engaging modules, associations can improve member engagement, retention, and satisfaction. Moreover, the cost effective nature of this tool, especially compared to alternatives like Articulate Storyline, makes it an attractive option for associations looking to maximise their resources. Embracing this innovative technology can lead to a more vibrant and active learning community, ultimately driving the success of the association and its members.
