This theme that i've attached to this post is specifically designed for the XO laptops distributed by the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program. I created it as part of a senior year project for my school. It's very basic- the user can adjust color schemes and such to suit them, but the difference is that it is designed to work with the unique properties of the XO laptop in ways that most webpages don't. I would really appreciate it if those who have the XO laptop could test it out and post issues that I need to deal with here. Please also feel free to check out the accompanying wiki page at http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Webpage_design_tips Thanks! In order to install this theme, just extract the folder, and paste into your C:/moodle/moodle/theme folder, then select it from the theme selection list.
Sure thing - here it is.
Note- This screenshot was taken on a normal computer- not an XO, so the offsets dont work as well. The key features are the floating images in the corners that mark the hotspots for the menu, and the margins designed to prevent content from being obscured when the menu comes up. Like i said, this is a VERY simplistic theme designed to be able to be modified by the user in order to fit individual preferences.
For some reason the floating images don't show up unless you are logged in. Working on that now. I'm by no means an experienced programmer, but I'm doing my best.
The course selections should have icons as well as names, to allow very young or illiterate users to access the choices.
Just one person's opinion.
PS screenshot attached of a Drupal theme I made for a kindergarten ... the words at the top are links to sections, with "Adults" leading to the (more complex) adult oriented portion of the website.
I got my XO last December through the G1G1 program and I am interested in seeing your theme in the XO. There is one thing I need help with though, do you know where I can get information on how to install Moodle in the XO as a local host?
Is that something you could perhaps tune?
Earlier I used a conventional moodle theme in the server http://moodle.elearning.edu
and through Wi-Fi acessed Moodle in XO. I even conneced XO to audio-video application in FMS and had the problem with XO camera.
