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!

Questions & Support:

Be kind by asking questions about Snap in the Moodle Themes Forum rather than on this page.

    Three more questions on how to fix some conflicts with the theme.
    1 Is there a work around so that it shows all Topics instead of only showing "Individual Topics"?
    2 And Is there a work around so that is can use "Collapsed Topics" and "Grid Format" ?
    3 Is there a way to change the size of the images and fonts?

    The plugin H5P doesn't seem to work in the "phone" layout.

    Do you have a date yet for the 3.2 release?

    Hi all,

    I need help with colon, first the admin tab simply goes blank whenever I try to access. Nothing appears to me. Is this a setup or a problem?
    Other point, I wonder if there is any way to put a link in the option Features & Benefits spots
    Thank you very much to all.

    Ana Olivar,

    Snap is not yet compatible with anything above 3.1. I believe the admin menu going away is what happens when you install Snap on a 3.3 installation (I've been there a few months ago and it confused me too).

    An update for 3.2 is apparently coming out in the very near future.

    Hi folks,

    the best place to ask about themes, including Snap, is in the moodle themes forum -

    Asking in the themes forum allows others to see any answers, and avoids you having to ask questions which might have already been answered.

    Best wishes

    Just installed and test out the latest Snap 3.2 off of GitHub--it looks AMAZING!!! Love the vertical menu to save precious header space, compatibility with User Tours, and with Guy's image optimiser that lazy loads images we can now give teacher's the tools to build fully functional, media rich, robust courses that are elegant and fully functional with ease of access and quick page load times! A big "THANK YOU!" to the Moodlerooms team for sharing your great work with the Moodle community at large!

    Hello, i have problems if i use this theme, i use Moodle v3.3 and snap master from github (support 3.3) :
    - First I can't delete all activity created.

    Hi Andri:

    I believe Snap 3.3 is still under development on Github....for now, v3.2 is the latest stable version and it works beautifully! You can tell the Snap team takes a lot of pride in their work and that they spent hundreds (if not thousands!) of hours developing this innovative interface / UX for Moodle! The feedback we have received from staff and students alike has been extremely positive!

    For getting Oauth2 for Google login, I created a "Label" on the front page with an image of the "Login with Google" button, and then linked the image to the 'Login with Google' link on the standard Moodle login page to make it easier for users to access.

    You will also need to modify the Oauth code--for the 3.2 plugin:

    1. Go to /var/www/moodle/auth/googleoauth2/lib.php
    2. Under the section (around line 71 - 76) you will want to comment out trying to detect the empty state:

    // Ensure that this is no request forgery going on.
    // And that the user sending us this connect request is the user that was supposed to.
    // if (empty($state) || ($_SESSION['oauth2state_' . $providername] !== $state)) {
    // throw new moodle_exception('invalidstateparam', 'auth_googleoauth2');
    // }

    Basically, you are spoofing the link to work from your homepage but don't want to trigger a false-positive error message.

    It's not a perfect solution, but it works on 3.2 with Snap! Hope this helps!

    I tried installing on moodle 3.3.2, main CSS could not be loaded. Not sure if it'll work on moodle 3.3.2. Please confirm

    @Ashit - The code in the master branch on git should work with 3.3 as it is now. Still should be regarded as pre-release though.
