For those Moodlers out there who use Moodle in combination with the popular Content Management System (CMS) Joomla, there is a Moodle theme build just for you. The Joomdle theme is a Bootstrap based theme that is now available and ready for Moodle 3.1. Click here to download the Joomdle theme from the Moodle repository.
Importantly, this theme should only be used in Joomdle sites. It should never be deployed in a stand-alone Moodle site. The theme has been designed specifically for this environment and a number of pieces – including the header, footer and login link – have been removed to allow for proper interaction with Joomla.
Some of the advantages of using Moodle inside a Joomla wrapper include:
- Single Sign on and off
- Centralized user profiles
- The ability to sell Moodle courses online
- The ability to integrate your site with Joomla extensions
- System health checking
If you’d like to learn more about how to integrate Joomla and Moodle, check out the Joomdle site here.
