How to build modern, professional-looking Moodle pages FASTER

Looking to speed up page building and customization in Moodle??

Here’s how you can quickly build Moodle pages and design them the way you want.

The demo importer and the page builder are the missing pieces in your Moodle page creation process.

I know, you already know the usual process of making Moodle pages attractive and professional-looking! 

  • You play with colour combinations
  • Swap out fonts
  • Work on making better course logos and graphics
  • Use interesting course formats 
  • Use visual and interactive elements and more 

But all of this takes time…..a LOT OF TIME. That brings me to the problem statement

The Moodle Page Creation PROBLEM

So, even if you do the above, one thing that you can’t do is completely switch things or change up the layout of your pages.

Different moodlers handle this problem differently.

Experienced ones like to experiment with coding, HTML, and CSS for better styling. Good for them. They’re absolute Moodle genies!!

Some just assign the job to designers and developers. Good for them too, they probably have a lot of money!

Some or.. may I say the MAJORITY of them like to keep things simple yet quick and low effort. They use a theme for Moodle. 

But here comes another problem – Not every theme is equipped with faster page building and customization features. So, evaluate them carefully before you pick one.

If you can’t!!! No worries, help is here….keep reading
