About the H5P Peak Chef Challenges

We are plotting a new “thing” from the H5P Kitchen as a low/no stakes opportunity to learn H5P cooking by a series of challenges.

At each webinar for the Cooking With H5P show –twice a month, one drop in session and one “main show”– we will announce a new challenge, something “bite sized” done with H5P (borrowing the framing of the Open Education Challenge series), and ask you to share as a comment response to the challenge.

There are no prizes, no critical judges. It’s just about seeing how many different creative ways there are to use H5P to address a situation or need.

It is meant to be fun.

This is modeled a bit from the E-Learning Heroes Challenge, which tends to be focused on Articulate software. Yet it demonstrates the value of seeing that there are multiple routes to solving a learning problem. I found out about these from JR Dingwall, a guest from our August 2020 webinar, who completes the E-Learning Heroes Challenge as an “InArticulate eLearning Hero” often using H5P for his responses.

This will not require H5P mastery, just a willingness to step into the kitchen and try. The goal is to offer a reason to experiment with the tools and appliances in the H5P Kitchen. They also are going to be geared primarily at the tasks the new round of H5P OER Grantee projects will be taking on as they work through their projects.

Are you ready for the first challenge? Look for to be announced Thursday, March 11, at our first Drop in Kitchen time.

Hi Emily. The regular cooking show webinars that we host at the end of each month will be open to all. But for the drop-in sessions that happen in between the webinars these are just to support the grantees with specific issues that are having with their projects so we have not made them open. That said, we will be recording the first part of the drop-in sessions where we will talk about these challenges and post that short video here. Everyone is welcome to participate in these challenges. Sorry for the confusion.
