Discovery: New Theme Coming in January 2017

Posted on by Lynette Sorenson

In January we will not only update our version of Moodle to 3.1, but will also introduce a new theme called SNAP.    If you are interested in being part of a “test” group who have access to this theme in the Discovery Sandbox, please send an email to lynette.sorenson@northwestu.edu.
