Theme Contest Winner

Over the past week, while the community has been rating the themes submitted to our Moodle 2.0 theme contest, we’ve been testing them out and looking over the underlying code. While we’re extremely pleased by the high quality of themes submitted by all of the contestants, this is a contest with a magical prize, so we’re going to have to declare one winner.

In the end, the Grand Prize winning theme is one that was highly rated by the community, is cleanly coded with few (if any) display errors, and makes creative use of the Moodle 2 Theme Engine. I’m pleased to announce that the winner of our Moodle 2.0 Theme Contest, and the proud new owner of a 16GB iPad, is Caroline Kennedy for her theme called Splash.

In addition to winning the iPad, Caroline’s theme will also be included in the Moodle 2.0 core along with other submitted themes that we’ll announce next week.

We’d like to again thank all who participated in our contest - both the theme designers as well as the raters/commenters. It’s always nice to see a positive community response to an event that strengthens Moodle overall.
