The example below shows an Image Hotspot H5P content type to allow students to interactively explore and interrogate visual concepts or diagrams.

The activity was created within H5P’s activity builder wizard, which is a simple and intuitive system for creating these and similar interactive teaching content. The activity was designed by Dr Kristofer Chan and can be easily adapted to other Geographical concepts and with flexibility over images displayed and concepts covered.
