Moodle Course Design in Snap

Posted: March 13, 2015 in e-learning

n Moodle site administrators set a theme to change the look and feel of the site. Moodle 2.7 has two themes (Clean and More), both of which are responsive. Moodlerooms also has a responsive theme called Snap. This theme is available to Moodlerooms customers and not only changes the look and feel of the site but the overall experience.

In previous posts I’ve discussed the benefits of responsive themes to support multiple devices and how to design courses for mobile access, but today I’m going to focus on Snap specifically. The reason being that Snap is that different!

Snap provides a new course experience for students because it changes the way content is presented to students when interacting with modules, organizes the content without the usage of the traditional column and block presentation, and groups key information (deadlines, recent activity, alerts) for each student in a dashboard view.

Since Snap changes the way content is displayed and has altered functionality for the display of modules, there are overall design choices that you might want to consider for a Snap course versus one using a different theme.

You can add an image to display behind the Table of Contents on the front page of the course by uploading a graphic into Course administration > Course settings > Course summary. Avoid having text near the top of this graphic since the course title overlays it. Lastly, make sure you are uploading a higher quality image since it is spanning the entire width of the page potentially if being viewed from a desktop device.
