Online Course Modules and Learning Units

You can create interactive learning modules on Stud.IP by using the Courseware plugin. Courseware allows you to structure your content in chapters, sub-chapters and sections composed of texts, PDFs, photos, videos and other file formats. You can also embed small tests, which you can create by using the Stud.IP plugin Vips (see here) for more information).

Detailed instructions for using Courseware are here. This document is currently available only in German. Should you need help with Courseware in English, please contact our team at We’d be glad to help!

Learning Modules

With the Learning Modules plug in, you can create individual H5P-enriched learning modules (see footnote 1 at the bottom of this page for more information on H5P). You can also embed videos or link to other websites to supplement your course materials.

WordPress for Course Related Blogs or E-Portfolios

Another tool for online collaboration is WordPress, which you can use directly on Stud.IP by activating the WordPress Connector plugin. There many different uses for this tool. As an instructor, you can use a blog to gather all course materials, guidelines and information in one place. Students can use blogs to work on individual or group assignments, or they can have their individual blogs. Blogs allow the integration of various file formats (photos, videos, audio, PDF) that can be clearly organized and presented. WordPress also supports LaTex. H5P elements[1] can be created directly in WordPress. The comment function is a convenient way to give feedback, but instructors can also use it for other questions and/or providing answers to issues that students raise. 

This page provides instructions for WordPress and the H5P plugin. It is currently available only in German, but if you need support in English, just email us at
