Snap is a Moodle theme that makes online learning an enjoyable and intuitive experience for learners and educators.

Snap's user-friendly design removes barriers to online learning, enabling you to create the modern, engaging experience user's expect on the web today. Snap's intuitive layout is optimised for online learning, focusing on the things that matter - your learning activities and content.

Personal menu

Snap’s easy to use navigation gives users an elegant way to perform frequent tasks. All your courses, deadlines, messages and feedback are always one click or tap away to save you time.

Courses with personality

Every course in Snap let's teachers add a cover image to give it a unique personality.

Courses in Snap allow you create individual topics, so learners understand where their focus should be without being confused or overwhelmed by lots of links and options. 

Each topic shows students their progress, which is updated inline with ajax as you progress through the course.

Every activity in Snap shows students the due date, if they have submitted, and if feedback is available - without having to open the activity. 

Teachers are shown how many users have submitted an activity, and if they need to grade any submissions. 

Teacher's workflows for creating and structuring content in their courses are also optimised to save time. With no need to turn editing on, inline resource/activity deleting, the ability to move multiple resources/activities at once, inline topic creation and many other ways to help teachers give learners the best online learning experience.

Working seamlessly across every device - from desktop to mobile, Snap’s responsive Twitter Bootstrap based framework provides a consistent, professional experience for learning whenever and wherever you want to learn.

You can learn more about Snap on our video playlist.

Under the hood:

Like most other Moodle Themes today Snap runs on Bootstrap 4, jQuery, Sass, and inherits from the Boost theme.


Snap is continuously updated, with each major version released 6 months after the Moodle release. If you'd like to test our work in progress it's always available on github!

    @Open LMS Development

    That did the trick. Updated to PHP 7.4 and installation was flawless.

    Hi, I have a Moodle v3.11, and installed the correct version, but now appears this error: Exceção - syntax error, unexpected 'array' (T_ARRAY), expecting function (T_FUNCTION) or const (T_CONST) when I try to access Site Administration. Can help me?

    Hi @Bruno Silva, This question was answered before.
    This error appears because this version is expecting PHP 7.4 (to be able to use typed attributes). Please confirm that you are using this PHP version in your system.

    Hi. I liked the plugin snap from looking at the plugin page. However, I think I made the mistake of installing it on a server with moodle 3.11. Now I get lots of error messages. Is there a quick fix to this, or do I have to manually uninstall it. I can no longer get into the plugins pages ad admin. Please help.

    Hi @Lars Tuff. Snap should work on Moodle 3.11 without a problem. Some troubles have been addressed and answered in previous posts. One of the most common is the PHP version on your server (It should be PHP 7.4). I hope this helped.

    Is there a timeframe or consideration for the Snap theme to be upgraded to Moodle 4.0 in the near future?

    La plantilla no funciona con moodle 4.03 muestra errores y manda mensajes de no compatibilidad con los colores por defecto que la platilla instala. si corriges seria bueno probarla.

    Hi from Argentina! This is a great plugin, visually outstanding. However, (as an admin) when I go to the site administration > appearance > dashboard , turn editing on and try to delete a visible block (from the "cog" of each block), I automatically get logged out to the login page. I can login perfectly but the problem remains.

    Strange enough, the issue doesn't appear to be anywhere else: only when trying to delete blocks.

    Moodle ver: 4.0.6+ (Build: 20230120)
    Snap ver: 4.0.5 (2022122100)
    I installed a fresh moodle copy with no extra plugins. Tested with PHP 8.0 and 7.4, mysql 5.7.31 in a WAMP server environment over Windows 10

    Then I tried the Moodle 3.11.7+ (Build: 20220701) with Snap ver 3.11.6 (2022101200) and all worked perfectly. I even install several plugins and no problem.

    So it seems to be a problem with the last theme update and this moodle version. I really wanted to use your beautyfull theme for my clients but this is a big problem.

    Could you please help me?

    Hi ,

    I would like to use the Snap theme but it seems problematic :

    Scenario 1: I installed the snap theme (version 4.0.7 (2023041100)) in Moodle (version Moodle 4.1.3+ (Build: 20230512)) and it doesn't look good , everything so big and all over the place.

    Scenario 2: I installed the snap theme (version 4.0.7 (2023041100)) on Moodle Moodle 4.0.5 (Build: 20221114) and it looks good except , it doesn't display certain type of activities suck as "Book", "Page".

    Note: even though Page activity is not displayed in Snap theme but it recognises there is an activity as it displays in progress 0/1 for that section.

    I also posted in Forums with screenshots of the issues:
