Selecting a theme will change the look and feel of your course. You can quickly change the colours of borders, backgrounds and text areas throughout your course by choosing a theme.

Some instructors like to use a different theme for each course – that way they keep each course separate (especially important if you have more than one section of the same course. ) Others like to “change things up” to generate a little more interest for their students.

Once you’re in one of your courses, click the Customize Page button.
