May 2010 | Content Management, e-Learning, Moodle, Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce a new book on Moodle that is aimed at helping users create a Moodle Theme right from the graphic design stage to the finished Moodle Theme. Written by Paul James Gadsdon, this book will offer design examples to administrators, designers or teachers and help them create appropriate themes for different student age groups and styles.

Moodle is a highly extensible virtual learning environment and is used to deliver online teaching and training materials. Theming is one of the main features of Moodle that can be used to customize your online courses and make them look exactly how you want them to.

Users will first learn the concept of Moodle themes and how they work. They will then learn how to create themes for Moodle, the tools that are required for the job, and how to download new themes from various resources on the Internet. Along with the creation of themes, they will also be shown how to choose and change an existing Moodle theme, and test the changes they have made.

The detailed instructions present in the book will guide Moodle users through the stages of creating a stunning theme for their site. They will be able to add their own customized logo, title text, and footer information in the website. From planning theme creation, through to the slicing and dicing of their designs and more advanced Moodle theming processes, this book will give users step-by-step instructions to create their own Moodle theme quickly.

The suggestions and examples in this book will help Moodle administrators, ICT technical personnel, designers or teachers adapt classroom activities to the Virtual Learning Environment. The book is out now and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit www.packtpub.com/moodle-1-9-theme-design-beginners-guide/book.
