evolve-D 2.0.0 Evolve-D / Dearborn Public Schools (Build: 2015402)

Moodle 2.7
Released: Friday, April 3, 2015, 3:52 AM


Evolve-D(earborn) encapsulates simplicity, function, and style as it unites many notable Moodle theme features into an evolved "More" theme. Evolve-D applies famed theme elements such as custom frontpage, Google Fonts, My Courses dropdown, block icons, and a variety of other enhancements made popular in Essential and Aardvark Themes. The evolve-D theme's appeal comes from it's simple 2 column design, muted colors, and focus on displaying content and minimizing distractions.

Dearborn Public Schools is a K-12 school distict in Dearborn, Michigan. We designed and use evolve-D on our Moodle site.

Special thanks to Aardvark and Essential theme developers Shaun Daubney and Julian Ridden for thier work which is replicated in part here.


Special care has been taken to make this theme for the teachers of Dearborn Public Schools. We support and love Moodle.
