How to Customize the Appearance of your Course Player

In this article, we will show you how you can customize the appearance of your course player. See how you can give the course your own feel.


1. Navigate to Courses → select a course → Course Player tab


By default, the Coloured Minimal skin will be selected. You then have the option to select a skin from the first three options: Colored minimal, Classic, and Minimal. If you choose the Minimal skins, the section descriptions will not be displayed in the Course Content section on the Course Layout page, and the learning activities descriptions will not be displayed in the course player.

Regarding the skins, there are two more specifically for Single Learning Activity courses: the Minimal and the Dark one.


After that, you have many options to customize your course player.

1. Show the course name in the course player or hide it.

2. Show a "Back to course page" button to provide an easy way for learners to find their way back to the course description page.

3. Show students' progress with a progress bar, which represents the percentage of the learning units that are considered completed.

4. Show all the course learners tab next to the "Path" tab. This tab presents all the enrolled learners as links and motivates them to connect.

5. Show the course discussion tab if you want your learners to be able to discuss your course topics. Check this article for more information on the Discussion settings.

6. Display the whole titles of sections even if they need multiple lines (wrapping). If you check this box, the entire titles of your sections will appear no matter how large they are. Otherwise, titles will appear in one line with an ellipsis (...) at the end.

7. Display the whole titles of learning activities even if they need multiple lines (wrapping), similarly to the section titles.

8. Display the estimated reading time of the ebooks (this setting can be enabled in the Ebook).

9. When the course loads, show all the course sections “opened and not just the current one. If you select this setting, all the sections will be opened and show the learning units they contain. Otherwise, only the selected section will be opened, and the other sections will be collapsed.

10. Add numbers automatically in front of the sections' names.

11. Start section numbering from 00 instead of 01. This is depicted on the Course Player, Contents tab, and any contents section.


Under your navigation settings, you can rename the navigation buttons, hide them, or show the next/previous navigation buttons at the bottom of the course player.

To preview all these changes, click Save and then Preview Course Player.


If you wish to apply the Course Player settings to all of your created courses, check the relevant settings under Apply Course Player settings to all other courses.


Further Customize the Course player using CSS


Remove the ellipsis at the end of the learning activity description

If you have a learning activity with a long description and you wish to remove the ellipsis (...) at the end, insert the following code in your Custom Code editor → <style> (CSS) for built-in pages (i.e., social, profile, work pad, my account):

.lrn-path-cont-type {
white-space: normal!important;
}

Change the background color of the learning activities section under Path 

You can add the following code in your Custom Code editor → <style> (CSS) for built-in pages (i.e., social, profile, work pad, my account) (make sure to add the hex color of your choice and replace #ffc0cb), to change the background color of the learning activities in the Path section:

.slug-path-player .lrn-path-conts{
background-color:#ffc0cb!important;
}

Change the background color of the Zoom learning activities

You can add the following code in your Custom Code editor → <style> (css) for built-in pages (i.e. social, profile, work pad, my account) (make sure to add the hex color of your choice and replace #ffc0cb) to change the background color in all Zoom learning activities:

.slug-zoomplayer #bodyWrapper{
background-color:#ffc0cb;
}

Hide the progress bar in the Course player

You can hide the progress bar in the Course Player, by using the following CSS snippet, which should be added in the Custom code editor of your school, and paste in the <style> (css) for built-in pages (i.e. social, profile, work pad, my account) slot. Don't forget to click on Update.
