I worked with Danelle Cook and Matthew Holt to create a new visual look for the University of Northwestern – St. Paul’s Moodle course site. With UNW’s change to from college to university and name change, their course site needed to be updated both visually and content wise.
Previously the site had been darker overall which inspired many students referred to the site as a “black hole” not only because of the theme, but also because of the difficulty in finding things. So our goals became making the site more accessible and more inviting for the students as well as the faculty.
Danelle and I worked on creating the new look and feel for the site and while Danelle and Matthew collaborated on creating a custom icon set, I undertook the coding of the new theme.
