The new look of eLearning

The Stamford International University’s eLearning Zone now sports a completely revamped look. The new theme has bigger & crisper text combined with soothing colors and clearer navigation.


The template is fluid-width, i.e. it expands to take up all the available screen area, thus providing a larger display area. Moreover, it is a “responsive” theme, meaning, it’ll re-orient and re-format itself when viewed on a mobile device like a tablet or a smartphone.

The template is based on a recently released Moodle theme known as Elegance.
