LMS Customization

An explanation why you may need a specifically tailored Learning Management System.

1. The strength of Moodle

Moodle is a widely used open source learning management system that is constructed from the start to be modular. That means that most of the available features are designed to operate independently from one another so that some can be switch off without negatively affecting the operation of the whole system. It also means that if you have specific needs not found in the basic system those can be added seamlessly as well without causing conflicts with the standard functions.

Most full featured management systems allow some customization in some fairly standard ways. The appearance of a site can be affected by the application of CSS styling documents. Sometimes functionality can be improved or changed by inclusion of javascript scripts into the page as one might with CSS. Both of these techniques are interpreted on the device of the user effectively merging the original functionality of the LMS with the additional elements.
