A note from Edd Clementson, Product lead at Titus
“This initial release focusses on some of the fundamental areas within the Moodle interface that we and our clients felt needed modernising. Many improvements were made in Moodle 4.0 to improve the user experience and interface and we’ve worked hard to enhance these further.
Our initial aim was to focus on the most heavily used areas of the platform, alongside introducing an array of customisation options across these areas, to ensure each platform can be branding easily by administrators.
We value the importance of an aesthetically pleasing learning platform and would love your feedback on this first release.”
With thanks to the team who worked on this release:
