The theme trema is focused in usability and beauty. In order to acheive this, our developers worked hard to make it clean and easy to use for everyone.

The main goal for this theme is that the Moodle site will not need another site for information/advertising/marketing.

Nice features in trema: - It's based in the boost theme, so it will continue to be compatible with Moodle for a long time. - The frontpage is fully customized. It's possible to change the image banner. You can create up to six beautiful cards with custom contents and you can add custom HTML content with no restrictions. - The login page is awesome with Particles lib. - We really use Bootstrap to make the theme fully responsive. - The footer is highly customizable and we have an exclusive admin area block that can be seen and accessed only by the site administrator. - Thinking a little more about the administrators we made the admin dashboard area, so that they can see in real time some data about their Moodle. - The colours scheme can be changed in the theme settings.
