Thanks for your help! A few things I had already solved.
1. I made changes in the language packs and this works for changing text
2. I'm using the BCU theme in moodle, but it only gives me the option to place a header image on the start page. This fine.
3. Yeah I bumped into this one also. It's now taken of. Perfect!
4. Think I solved it, but will also check the blocks. Thanks!
5. I now made thumbnails available, still need to add text. Will dive into it
6. I solved this. It was in the spot you suggested. Thanks!
7.The students should not be able to do anything with events or agenda or blog. They can only view the events but should not be able to add events themselves, same for blog etc. I did play with permissions, but couldn't solve this yet.
8. Thanks will check
9. I already told them this would not be possible. It's a free LMS to use, but you can not expect everything ofcourse
10. WIll check it out
11. Thanks will chcek it out.
Thanks for all the help. It was a lot of text but very helpful. Thanks so much.
