Join George Papazian for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing a theme, part of Moodle Administration Essential Training.
- We've come to the point in our course where it's time…to customize the look of our site a little,…which is what we're gonna look at in this chapter.…And we'll start with this video,…with knowing how to choose a good theme.…Keep in mind that Moodle customization…can turn into an enormous topic,…which could easily occupy an entire course or two.…There's little doubt that your school will request…at least some minor changes to the way Moodle looks.…Some of these you'll be able to perform…with your essential skills from this chapter,…but to perform others, you'll need more advanced skills…or even programming skills.…Customizing the look of Moodle can be found under…Site administration and then down under Appearance.…
Even this chapter will not suffice…to cover all of the options in that section,…but I wanna cover some of what might be the basic requests…you'll often get from school administrators…and curriculum creators.…The first thing you should know about customization…is selecting and configuring a theme.…Just finding and applying an appropriate Moodle theme…
