On This Page:
Moodle allows you to choose between seven variations on a custom UMass Amherst theme. Select a color suitable to the content of your course. To learn how to change the theme for your course, see Important Settings for Your Moodle Course.
You can’t add images to the top banner, but to enliven your course page you can use images in the course Sections (see Organize Your Moodle Course Page ), or in a sidebar Block (see Add an HTML Block in Moodle).
Our UMass themes feature:
- Mobile-friendly responsive design. Columns stretch to fill a larger browser window or shrink to fit in a smaller browser window, and adapt to available screen space on a tablet or phone.
- Two or three column layouts. Moodle courses have a three column layout by default, but you can also move all the blocks to one side for a two-column layout with a wider column for course sections. (Best for courses that use very few blocks.)
- Readable fonts, with universally accessible formatting.
Note: If a course theme is set to "Do not force," the course will use the theme from the Moodle at UMass Amherst entry page.
