A Moodle site like University of New England in Australia  reminds me that with the right CSS and website coding magic, you can actually have a pretty nice LMS interface. Seeing a site like that always brings this thought to my mind: "Wow, how did they do that?". I mean, how much effort does it take to spruce up a Moodle site so that it looks so deliciously different from out of the box?

and here again..

and the familiar login screen..

Hi Frankie, couldn't agree more. Out of the box it looks terrible but with a bit of CSS you can make Moodle look awesome!

If its the 'out-of-the-box' look and feel that's a large part of the issue, perhaps we should be paying more attention to getting some of the most popular and best looking themes (Essential/Aardvark - in one of its variations)/Rocket/etc) into core and freshen up the list of core themes?

It would be nice to see some of these institutional themes made available to the community too - even as a gallery if the themes themselves can't be made available due to image copyright etc - just to prove what Moodle CAN look like. There are some good looking themes out there - and Moodle doesn't HAVE to look like Moodle.

Both the images attached are Moodle front pages (I have blurred various bits because I didn't want to fall foul of any advertising rules on the forum smile ), and if you take a look at some of the work Mary Evans does to create Moodle Themes from other web-templates too!!
