LibreStudio, also known as Studio, is a no-cost, open-source platform designed specifically for educators to create, share, and remix interactive instructional content using H5P. Initially launched in 2021 as a pilot project, Studio was aimed at testing the effectiveness and necessity of interactive Open Educational Resources (OER) in California. As of Summer 2022, Studio has been fully operational, providing an accessible platform for educators who wish to create interactive OER.

What is H5P?
H5P stands for HTML5 Package, and it is a free and open-source software that allows users to create and share interactive HTML5 content. H5P is designed to simplify the process of creating interactive content and making it available for online learning, education, and training.
H5P provides a range of interactive content types, such as quizzes, interactive videos, presentations, games, and more. These content types are fully customizable, allowing users to tailor the content to their specific needs and preferences. H5P content can be easily embedded into websites, learning management systems, and other digital platforms, making it a versatile tool for creating interactive learning experiences.
