[Sign-up Due] H5P Exploration Project
April 15 @ 4:00 PM
At the end of the 2020-2021 academic year, Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs approved the ASA Technology Council recommendation to fund a four-year research project that seeks to explore the impact an interactive content authoring tool (H5P) has on student learning and instructional practices.
Any faculty or staff members who creates content to support student learning experiences are invited to participate in this research project. Up to 100 participants will receive an author’s license to use H5P (hosted by H5P.com) at no cost. Licenses will be funded from November 2021 through January 2026.
Participants are welcome to use H5P to create content without licensing their content to others, however, to support open educational resources (OER) initiatives, Minnesota State will compensate up to 15 employees who agree to use H5P to develop and apply a Creative Commons license to the creation of any ancillary materials used in conjunction with existing OER.
The Minnesota State system office will compensate faculty members who are represented by MSCF or IFO an amount equivalent of 1/2 credit plus their related fringe. Staff members not represented by MSCF or IFO will be compensated the number of regular (exempt) or overtime hours (non-exempt) equivalent to $1,500.
Research Project Requirements
Faculty and staff who receive a license to use H5P agree to share data about how H5P is used (e.g. counts of page views, activity logs, etc.). Participants are asked to attend periodic meetings (1-2 per term to share experiences, etc.).
Interested participants who would like to begin summer 2022 are asked to sign-up using this registration form by Friday, April 15, 2022 at 4:00 PM, participants notified by Monday, May 2, 2022.
