Answer to an assignment (as student)
Admin learninglog (as super (network) admin)
Create new assignment (as teacher)
Are there themes included?
Yes. There are two BuddyPress compatible themes included. You can activate them through the themes section of the super (network) admin menu.
One is called ‘Learninglog Home Template’ and is intended to be set as the current theme for the super admin.
The second is called ‘Learninglog User Template’ and is intended to be set as the current theme for all the other users/blogs.
What is the ‘Admin CSS’ component?
The ‘Admin CSS’ component is by default deactivated and can be activated by the super admin in the ‘Admin learninglog’ section. By doing so, the administration area of all users/blogs are adjusted to the design of the learninglog theme (see above).
What is the SidebarLeft sidebar?
If the ‘Learninglog Home Template’ is set as the current theme (see above), widgets can be placed on the left side of the home screen, as for exampple pages or plain text.
