Today Sarah and I facilitated a workshop on creating simulations using H5P branching logic. Virtual simulations are an innovative strategy to enhance student learning both synchronously and asynchronously. We have chosen to build our simulations in H5P because it is free and works well with Moodle. Below are our slides and a copy of the simulation you can download and edit. We are doing a workshop where we co-create a simulation in H5P to show how easy it is. After this session I will update the post with answers to FAQ.

What I learned:

Winging it and videotaping a genuine reaction when asking a student to remove PPE may be more engaging than scripting. Watching some react to when dirty gloves touch their hair or saying things like “I see the problem here” is engaging. You can then plan the branches based on what they said. More to come later …
