Meet Gareth Barnard – senior ElearningWorld writer and Moodle Theme guru.
Based in the UK, Gareth is well-known to many in the Moodle community as the maintainer of the Essential Theme – the most downloaded and used Moodle Theme ever.

Gareth’s current focus is more on the new Themes he is creating ‘from scratch’ such as Shoelace and Shoehorn. He also works with other Themes such as Campus, Blocks such as the Theme switcher, and course formats such as Collapsed Topics / Format, and the popular Grid course format plugin.
Gareth is also widely recognised from his regular involvement in the online iMoot, and the fact that he is the facilitator for our MoodleBites Theme Design course.
Interestingly Gareth doesn’t write from a purely technical perspective. His experience as a teacher, interest in Steam Punk and other varied topics, means he writes in a challenging and engaging way for readers of all backgrounds.
