Allow course themes If enabled, teachers are provided with a “Force theme” option on their course settings page. The course will always be displayed in the theme specified in the course setting, with the user and site themes being ignored.

Theme selector Moodle has a number of themes for you to choose from using the theme selector, including an interactive theme called Chameleon. Chameleon uses Ajax technology to enable you to easily design your own theme or enhance an existing theme. Further information on Chameleon can be found in the Moodle documentation. Alternatively, you can download a theme from the Moodle.org themes database (http:// moodle.org/themes). To install a theme from the Moodle.org themes database: 1. Unzip the theme on your computer. 2. Copy the folder to the moodle/theme directory on your server. 3. Click on Appearance in the Site Administration block, then Themes > Theme selector. 4. Click the Choose button opposite your new theme. (If your new theme is missing from the list of themes, check that the new theme folder in the moodle/theme directory doesn’t contain another folder with the same name, as this may occur with some ZIP utilities.)

Calendar Moodle’s calendar displays the following events: Site These events are created by administrators and are viewable in all courses. Course These events are either created by teachers or are a result of setting closing dates for activities such as assignments and quizzes, or repeating chat sessions. Course events are only viewable by course participants. Groups These events are created by teachers and are only viewable by members of a group. User These are personal events that a user can create and are only viewable by the user. The days and events to look-ahead settings are for displaying events in the Upcoming Events block. If the Upcoming Events block becomes too long, you can reduce the number of days and events to look-ahead.
