Sometimes, themes and plug-ins are created that are below peoples’ radars; they just don’t get noticed, or they at least take a lot of time to get noticed. But when it comes to the Moodle Essential theme, Moodle users took to it instantly. Indeed, no other theme has been downloaded as much as this Moodle responsive theme was in the space of its first two months.
If you ever wondered what you need to know to create Moodle theme, the info below would of much help.
What Is The Moodle Essential Theme?
Created by Julian Ridden, this responsive theme is “made to have the site look as little like Moodle as possible.”
The reason? Because if your site looks like Moodle, it will look like every other Moodle site!
Put simply, you won’t stand out from the crowd. Essential is Moodle customisation at its best and is so highly configurable that your Moodle site will have no trouble looking 100% unique.
Moodle Essential comes with a number of setting options:
- Configure the general behaviour of your theme
- Colour and background image settings
- Configure your front page slide show
- Configure the URLS for your mobile app links
Essential: An Excellent Moodle Responsive Theme
Essential is a responsive theme that can intuitively and intelligently reposition your content as the size of the user’s browser window alters. It adapts easily to mobile or tablet devices, and can thus used by anyone in any location, whether they are at home, in the office, or on the road.
Effective Moodle customisation is an essential part of Essential, and its ability to look user-friendly and accessible on any type of browser is one of its strengths. An e-learning program needs to be accessible, and Essential is just that.
Fantastic Moodle Customisation
Essential allows you to configure lots of different things. You can easily configure:
- Front page slide show
- Front page marketing sports
- Your course page
- The Gradebook
- And much more
It’s worth highlighting that this Moodle Essential theme is only available with the latest Moodle (Moodle 2.5.1). Trying it on Moodle 2.5 might work for a short while, but you will eventually encounter a few bugs.
