Changing the Look ro Language for a Course
How do I change the look of my course page in Moodle?
The Eckerd College theme is the default look or theme for courses. Its colors match the colors in the MyEckerd site. However, you may want to change the look (theme) for your course. On the left hand side of the main page, go to Settings --> Course administration --> Edit settings. When the settings page comes up, the top area is "General" with the next area being "Enrollments". The the last item in "General" is "Force Theme." The default setting is "do not force." However, you can force a theme just by selecting a theme from the drop-down menu. If you don't see what you want, there are lots of other themes available on the Internet. If you find a free one that you like, a Moodle Administrator can probably load it on the system for you.
How can I change the course web site from English to another language?
English is the default language, but other languages are available. If you go to Settings --> Course administration --> Edit setting you will find near the bottom of the list a section called "Language." The default setting is "Force language= Do not force." However, you can change the language to another language by selecting a language listed in the drop-down menu. (If the language you want to use does not appear in the drop-down list, please let me know and I can add it to the site.). All the Moodle titles of sections, days of the month, navigation tools, etc., in your course site will be changed if you change this setting. It will not affect the Moodle program outside of your course. If you want your course web site in a language that is not listed, please contact a Moodle administrator.
