Moodle Themes – what do you need them for? A theme allows you to change the look and feel of a Moodle platform. Depending on the theme, other areas can be customized.
There is a wide range of Moodle themes on the market – some paid, but many available for free. Today we present our top 3 themes that are free and fully responsive:
- Adaptable: This two-column theme offers comprehensive layout settings and a layout builder. Blocks can be added – on the home page, dashboard, or course page – by dragging and dropping. In the optional two-row or three-row header, a search box is available by default. In addition, a registration form can optionally be added here. Up to 60 user-defined blocks can be positioned on the start page.
- Campus: Option number 2 presents again a very customizable theme, as the focus is entirely placed on reflecting the CI of a company in the best possible way. The adjustment of the header to the design requirements is also possible. Further possibilities for individualization are as follows: categories can be used as sub-themes and there is the possibility of a category slideshow. The full-screen mode also ensures maximum working comfort. Moreover, this theme is optimized for MNET authentication (Moodle Network authenthication). This Moodle network feature allows a Moodle administrator to establish a link with another Moodle site and to share some resources with the users of that Moodle.
- Moove: The app-like look puts the focus on the main content. An elegant detail is the login window, which is placed above the header. As with the Campus theme, the Moove navigation menu and page blocks can be collapsed for a wider view. The dashboard provides a quick overview of statistics, especially for administrators, and four marketing boxes on the home page can be filled with individual text.
In the mentioned suggestions, all of them let you customize the fonts, colors, block styles and gives you the option of a fully responsive header. And last but not least there is the possibility of a frontpage slider in each for each theme presented.
Our conclusion: we are convinced of all three Moodle themes!
