Transcript of "Moodle 2.0 themes"

  1. 1. Moodle 2.0 themes Pieter van der Hijden (pvdh@sofos.nl) - 3 April 2011Sofos Consultancy, Amsterdam, The Netherlands 1
  2. 2. 1 IntroductionThe look and feel of a Moodle site is highly dependent on the "Theme". Technically, a "Theme" is aset of Cascading Style Sheets, developing them is a professional job: designing the look and feel andbuilding it into style sheets.At site level the theme policy may be selected:• one theme to be used for the whole site• each course category may have its own theme• each course may have its own theme• each user may select his/her favourite themeWhen migrating from Moodle 1.9 to Moodle 2.0, themes are not migrated. The new Moodle 2.0version comes with 17 new built-in themes. Many of them can be customised easily by changingsome parameter settings. In this way it is possible to fine tune a built-in theme to let it fit your housestyle. If that is not sufficient, it is always possible to let some specialists develop your own theme.Content of this memo:• The Gallery chapter gives a visual impression of the 17 standard themes Moodle 2.0 has on board.• The Settings chapter lists the settings of each of the standard themes that can be changed by the system administrator and gives an example of the look and feel of a modified built-in theme.2 GalleryIn the following paragraphs the standard themes Moodle 2.0 has on board are visualised. Note, thatmany themes can be changed interactively, e.g. allowing colours of your house style to be used. 2
