In under three hours, I went from a blank piece of paper to the simulation below with the help of a Katherine (content and videography) and Sarah (H5P tips). How awesome is that?

This simulation was developed for a course next fall as well as a workshop on May 8th at the SIM Symposium in North Bay. During that workshop, we want to show just how easy the new branching logic in H5P is to use. Join the Hub for a similar workshop on May 22 and/or a similar session on interactive video on May 28 where educators share their successes with H5P awesomeness!

All the footage for this simulation was shot with my smartphone and a cheap tripod. The only editing that was done involved trimming the beginning and end of a few clips directly inside YouTube. With this new technology I can easily swap out clips or add branches as needed.
