As I read online, I bookmark resources I find interesting and useful. I share these links periodically here on my blog. In this post, I share links on branching scenarios, capturing video use data, PowerPoint productivity, and more.
Branching Scenarios: Yes, No, Maybe? – The H5P PB Kitchen
This is another post about Alan Levine’s branching scenario built in H5P and Pressbooks. At the bottom of the post, Alan provides links to several other examples of branching scenarios built in H5P.
Creating a Branching Scenario Quiz with Camtasia

You can only do one search per day for free; otherwise it’s $99/month for unlimited searches (which only makes sense if you’re doing a LOT of market research).
