The theme you apply to your Moodle website helps shape the user experience of your learners. A good theme should be clean, functional, and make your LMS features easy to navigate. Here are five effective themes for your Moodle 3.5 website.

You can use a convenient drag and drop feature to build your different pages and create customized menus. Consider this high level of customization if branding is one of your priorities, or if you want to create a Moodle site designed for user journeys that are specific to your audience for a seamless and immersive experience to boost engagement.
