Blockchain … disruptive … bingo!

It’s time for a new content type — or at least a demo version of it. It’s nothing super duper fancy. But it’s a little different than existing content types, because it doesn’t feature any kind of automated checking or feedback. So … huh … yeah … what is it good for? Absolutely nothing …

Nah, maybe it is good for something. If you know that you’re going to a boring conference (meeting, lecture, webinar, movie, … ), why not set up a nice game of buzzword bingo with H5P and share the link with other participants?!

A more “serious” approach could be to use it for ice breakers. Just prepare a bingo sheet that goes like this: “Find someone who …” and then list a bunch of attributes such as “listens to podcasts regularly”, “wears green socks” or “had to travel more than 10 kilometers today” – and let people get a bingo …

Normal bingo works, too, of course. You can define a set of numbers or phrases or words, the size of the bingo board (3 to 7 columns and rows), put an optional image or video on top, and you can even set a joker in the center. Well, and that’s basically it. Oh, sure, the most important thing for so many people: Yes, I’ll probably also add some options for visual styling such as changing the colors 😉

Of course, this might become more entertaining when the multiplayer API for H5P is ready one day, but maybe this is already useful for some of you 🙂

Feedback and suggestions are welcome as always! In what kind of scenarios could you use this content type? What should be improved?

Feel free to download this content to play with the demo or to have a look at the source code on github. If it’s worth a coffee, check out my Patreon page.

  1. Ich hatte Bingo manuell (also ohne Softwareunterstützung) mit Fachbegriffen aus meiner Einführungsvorlesung in die Bildungstechnologie genommen. Jeder bekam einen Zettel und füllte ihn entsprechend immer dann aus, wenn ich während der Vorlesung einen der Fachbegriffe erwähnte. Zum Gewinnen gab es mein neuestes Buch. – Da könnte Dein H5P-Bingo vielleicht sehr hilfreich sein.

    Das war zwar witzig und hat den Leuten Spass gemacht. Mein didaktische Idee dahinter, dass sie aufmerksamer meiner Vorlesung zuhören. Das hat aber nicht funktioniert. Im Gegenteil: Sie waren so ins Spiel vertieft, dass sie nur mehr auf meine Catch-Wörter geachtet haben und anderen Inhalt an sich vorbei laufen lassen haben.
