2 For all of you that would prefer a dark background to the default option shown above, you can use the following template instead. It has the exact same functionality as the previous template, except it is a dark alternative.
3 If your school is mostly focused on the use of photographs and videos, or even if it's not focused on these subjects but still you would like to personalize the contents of your course, the next template is for you. By supporting a unique picture for each learning unit, your course will look modern and fresh while your learners will be able to quickly tell apart the learning units with a quick look.
Note: Do you see the number of the sections and the label on the upper right corner of the template? Well, this is the color that appears when your users hover over a section of your course. You can easily change their color by navigating to "Appearance" --> "Logo & Colors" and changing the Main Color for your entire school.
