This months font is ‘Cartoonist Hand’ (www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/SF-Cartoonist-Hand). It has a clear but personal look to it, which detaches itself from the computer generated world and thus gives the feeling that the educator is talking to you directly.
Here you can see it in the Shoelace theme (moodle.org/plugins/pluginversions.php?plugin=theme_shoelace) – version 22.214.171.124:
with a new feature that I introduced last month called ‘Seamless’. As you can see the font plays an important piece in the puzzle. But it is not the whole story. You pick a font to suit many aspects of the site you are creating to match the needs of your learners. The font is an expression of the emotion and tone that you want to portray. It helps to establish the mental state of mind required to engage in the subject matter.
What are your thoughts? How much do you feel a font adds to your courses? Please comment below.
