Moodle, as an open source LMS, has many advantages over proprietary alternatives. Notwithstanding the benefits of being able to add a large assortment of robust plugins, one can also customize Moodle’s look to improve accessibility and UX by installing additional themes and tailoring those themes using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
With CSS, it’s possible to tweak a theme’s color scheme, add borders and backgrounds, modify text fonts and styles, and much, much more. One aspect, though, that has always been a challenge is the positioning or rearranging of blocks elements. With the introduction of the CSS Flexbox layout, the ability to move these elements around has been simplified considerably.
In this short presentation, we will demonstrate how to use the Flexbox layout to move and position elements on the login page and the login block on the site homepage to improve accessibility and user experience.
Memory plays a key role in our everyday life, for reasons ranging from mere survival to relaying information from one generation to the next. Memory is indeed of paramount importance during one’s student and professional life, but more often than not, the effort needed to learn new tools or concepts seems disproportionate to the final result. As a consequence, we might even start believing the problem lies in our learning abilities. For instance, how many training programmes, conveniently packed in just a few hours, have we all undergone, only to find little to no trace of them in our memory? It is certainly a shame, but it is not inevitable

This is aimed at people who need to keep archive versions of Moodle available, but need to know the data will not be changed.
This plugin is an alternative database driver for MySQL. It presents a banner on first login and then silently discards almost all writes to the database from all users except admin. It allows some writes to enable features such as logging and file downloads, but nothing to the learning content of Moodle.
It will cover the (significant) differences between this and the course freeze feature of Moodle 3.6
