Customizing Edvance360: More Than Logo & Colors

blog.jpg

For many LMS vendors, the most admins can do to brand a site is to add a logo, select a color theme, and maybe use some CSS (if you're fancy enough to know what you are doing). At Edvance360, we realize that every one of our clients is going to need more than some changes to a logo and colors. There are several layers of customization that our clients can utilize to make sure their user's experience is vastly different than any other Edvance360 client and custom-tailored to your user, every time.

Layer 1: Change your logo, select a color scheme (or get a custom one), add a login page logo, upload an avatar, and add a login page background graphic. Choose between page layouts. Decide click-paths for learners to the actual course material (e.g. does the course go straight to the first step of the first lesson of the first course or stop off somewhere). Add Home Page banners, video, etc.

Layer 2: Get a custom color scheme from our marketing team, based on your style preferences.

Layer 3: Use CSS to change colors, icons, etc.

Layer 4: Turn on and off widgets for your different user roles.

Layer 5: Get custom widgets created for your custom needs.

Layer 6: Work with marketing team to design your own custom Home Page layout.

Layer 7: Work with the marketing team to design your own custom Welcome Pop Up to direct different user roles to their main duties or things that need their attention.
