Definitions

Hybrid Teaching vs Blended Learning
Hybrid teaching means teaching face-to-face, but where a part of the students is connected online via a video conferencing system and thus actively participates in the event. Blended learning refers to a complete teaching concept or a form of learning that takes place over the course of a semester or several courses. It is a didactically meaningful combination of traditional face-to-face teaching with online units. The concept combines the effectiveness and flexibility of electronic forms of learning with the social aspects of face-to-face communication and, where applicable, practical learning.

H5P
H5P is the abbreviation of HTML5 Package, a free and open source software for creating interactive (learning) content for teaching. This TeachCenter feature can be used to create interactive videos, tests and presentations.
