Welcome to the 'new look' Moodle

As of 1st August 2014, Moodle has been upgraded to version 2.6 and now features a new, more mobile-friendly theme. 

A blog post highlighting some of the changes you might encounter is available on the LSHTM e-Learning blog. For students, the biggest change is to the text editor, which has increased its icon sizes and displays only the most commonly-used tool icons by default. To expand the range of icons to the full set, click the furthermost left icon, ‘Toolbar Toggle’, on the text editor toolbar.

The new theme is designed to be 'responsive', meaning that the site will now perform more smoothly across a range of mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets.

If you encounter any issues when using the site in the coming days, please get in touch with Joanna Stroud from the e-Learning team.
