What's New in this release

Moodle theme and version upgrade

Both learnonline moodle and UniSA Online moodle will receive a version and theme upgrade in December 2020.  This site will keep you informed of upcoming changes and give you previews of how the new themes will look and function.

What will a new theme mean for you?

A theme in moodle is effectively a skin applied over the top of the course content. It will govern the “look and feel” of sites. It includes the colours being displayed, the navigation and the placement of core functionality. It will have a minimal impact on the functionality of the learning and teaching content added to the site. 

Can I copy/create for upcoming Study Periods?

Yes. You can copy sites over or create sites for upcoming study periods as per your usual processes. More information on the theme is available in the Theme Upgrade chapter of this book.

About the transition theme

The Transition theme has been applied to all courses in SP7, OUA SP4, and for 2021 course preparation. To reduce the impact on students studying in courses which will be delivered both before and after the upgrade we have applied a transition theme, which matches the new theme as close as possible.  Due to a large number of request to support preparation of 2021 content, the transition theme has also been applied to all 2021 courses.  Please see Getting started with the new theme, in this resource for tips on getting started.
