Our latest favourite Moodle theme - Institute of Financial Services

by Gemma Mellings on | Feb 05, 2014 | Blog, Themes | 0 comments

We have recently worked with the Institute of Financial Services (IFS) in creating a new bespoke Moodle theme for the company.

Joanna Richardson, Learning Technologist at IFS comments on their Moodle site and working with HowToMoodle;

"Our Moodle VLE is a core part of our student experience and delivers over 150 courses. We’d had the same theme since its launch in 2010 and felt it was time to update it and create a more current look and feel. We’d worked with HowToMoodle previously for training delivery, so contacted them to discuss the creation of a new theme. They explained the options, stages of the process and costs up front. A schedule of work was agreed based on our requirements and an online meeting with a designer was arranged, where we explained our goals for the project and our current website branding. Two weeks later we were provided with three different theme concepts, from which we selected the elements we wanted. These were then put together into a final version, which, once approved was built for us. We tested the new theme on a demo site and, after some final amendments, were provided with a version for installation on our own Moodle environment."

Commenting on the final design Joanna says;

"We’ve begun applying the theme to our courses; we’re really pleased with the final result and feedback from our stakeholders has been very positive. The experience has been very straightforward and working with How to Moodle has provided us not only with access to design ideas, but also insight into what can be achieved within a Moodle theme."
