Listening skills are crucial for language acquisition. In a situation where we deal with English accents, intercultural communication, or a specific area of expertise (ESP, CLIL), this aspect of ESL teaching requires a distinctive approach, especially in blended and distance learning. Besides, the situation is complicated by modern educational standards that require digitalization of the teaching process. On the one hand, teachers have at their disposal ready-made materials available on various sites and platforms, but they do not always correspond to the content of training in full, which makes it difficult to integrate them into the curriculum of the discipline. On the other hand, development of specific software that would contain all the necessary components requires programming skills that not every teacher has. This creates a contradiction and presents a new challenge for teachers. The aim of the article is to suggest one of the possible solutions in teaching listening online that is to create a digital course book by means of LMS Moodle and H5P. The authors explore the ways of working with listening tasks in LMS Moodle, give recommendations on H5P Interactive video production, its interface and assessment settings. H5P Interactive video tool can be successfully integrated into Moodle: it helps to organize listening tasks effectively; to keep both all the materials and students grades on University Moodle webserver that is convenient and safe; it allows students to work on their own following interactive instructions and hints. The experience of interactive listening course book development in Moodle by means of H5P plugin is discussed. The problematic issues of the course book development and introducing it into practice are analyzed. The work’ perspective is to expand the content of the audio workshop, to improve its tools and to further integrate it into the educational process in the training of future English language teachers.
