Theme Options Overview

Once you activate the Edwiser RemUI theme, you should be able to notice a stark difference between Edwiser RemUI elements and Moodle’s default interface.

Edwiser RemUI takes care of highlighting sections of the layout and making actionable items clearly visible; thus enhancing your content creation experience.

The ‘quick links’ in the top menu and the right sidebar make it easy for you – the LMS admin- to easily access content, settings and create courses, events and activities.

Exploring the Top Navigation Menu

The top navigation menu contains several easy access options.

  • The left (≡) & right () sidebar toggle options allow you to hide or show the sidebar panels. Hiding the sidebar panels allows for distraction free reading
  • The ‘Mail‘ option allows you to check your recent messages with a link to your inbox
  • The ‘Notifications‘ option maintains a list of recent activities
  • An ‘Upcoming Events‘ option allows you to view scheduled events

User Shortcuts

Upon clicking your username, you should uncover options to:

  • View the LMS Dashboard,
  • View ‘Courses‘ page (pretty useful on pages where right sidebar is not present),
  • Site news‘ page,
  • and the ‘User Profile‘ page
