The theme developers make some pretty bold claims owing to the numerous features the theme contains. But is the theme all it’s claiming to be? Does it live upto the hype?

Here’s our take on it.

What is Edwiser RemUI all about?

Edwiser RemUI, a theme for Moodle by WisdmLabs, is a front-end as well as back-end theme for Moodle. That is to say, not only does it change the homepage of your Moodle website, it also adds new skins or layouts on the admin side.

With user-oriented functionality added to each layout, it’s meant to not only improve Moodle’s visual appeal, but to make interaction as easy as possible.

The latest version packs in even more features, the highlight being Moodle 3.2 compatibility.

When you think of a Moodle theme, the most you expect is a remodelled homepage. But Edwiser RemUI brings more to the table. You start noticing the difference between this theme and other Moodle themes once you log in.

Navigation Options & Quick Links

 

A major advantage the theme presents is simplified navigation options. Apart from the traditional left navigation menu, the theme offers quick links at every step to increase user productivity. For example, one click enrollment option or student report options on the course archive page, or an event creation option on the calendar save a manager’s or teacher’s time when working with the theme. This flexibility provides a solid reason for anyone looking to switch to this theme.

Edwiser RemUI offers interfaces that display seamlessly on both desktop as well as mobile devices. The layouts adapt to fit well on smaller screens without the need  of any additional settings or customization.

 

Edwiser RemUI Theme SetUp

While the theme options are plenty, one can’t help but wonder if this very plethora of options makes the theme laborious to set up?

Well, it’s quite the contrary.  The theme has a clearly laid out options panel wherein settings are categorically divided. The theme guides you through the settings and you can skip them if you need and edit them later.

A detailed documentation backs the settings options, additionally providing you tips to optimally set up your Moodle website.

This premium moodle theme has cross browser compatibility and it works perfectly on all browsers like IE, Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari etc. Theme also supports Moodle versions upto 3.0. It has an integrated Google maps facility too. There is a slider to display images from your own gallery. Each webpage can display a maximum of three columns. Also, it supports 4 social media icons like Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest. It is very well optimized for tablets and mobile devices, as it is a necessity nowadays!  Yet another useful and interesting option is jQuery counter, with which the website can display active students count and many more.

Coming to its other side, it has only 5 colour scheme options, compared to other premium moodle themes which enable users to choose any from the colour panel. The header and footer options are very much limited too.

#3 – Roshni – modern, better headers and more social links!

The next awesome feature is that it has TinyMCE HTML editor to work on the HTML code. There are four pages with excellent background colour change options. Also, it provides two sliders to display images. The interesting part of Roshni is that it has ten social media icons, which is one of the greatest counts that any Moodle premium theme could offer!

#4 – Marble – column-wise display and a customized footer? Go for Marble

Moodle Premium Themes

Marble by presenting four columns display, is best suited for more information in a compact space. It offers a customized footer in which social media links of your choice can be placed. Besides providing varied colour options, it is compatible with Opera too. Marble is equipped with good background image settings as well. There are sliders for images and six different social media icons. Most importantly it has Hide Block Option, if the customer does not wish the main menu to occupy the space.

But the Hide Block Option can sometimes be a disadvantage too! If the user unknowingly clicks the Hide Block button, the main menu goes hidden. As the main menu lies pretty down the page, the user might not be aware that it is hidden! Also, the user has to scroll down every time to look for most required information such as Login, Site News and other links. Though Marble – the moodle premium theme looks awesome, there is no jQuery counter and has minimized header options.

The limitations of Shiksha are pretty much lower than the other Moodle premium themes. Like most premium Moodle themes, it does not have Hide Block option and has only three columns display.
