This website uses an H5P plugin from, Norway. H5P is a free and open source software for creating interactive learning content for the Internet using videos or presentations with various embedded quiz and memory tasks. H5P processes and stores anonymous report data from your interactions with H5P elements via an xAPI interface. This data is used to obtain feedback on the design of the interaction options offered.

H5P stores a randomly generated UserID in the local memory of your computer which is used for xAPI statements (xAPI is a standard that allows you to track, store and share your learning experience across platforms and multiple contexts). This allows to assign the xAPI statements to the same person even if you are an unregistered user - without having the information who the person is.

Legal grounds for using them is to provide appealing interactive learning content on this website.
