The font can have a big impact on the look and feel of your Moodle site.
It sets the tone and ’emotion’ that you wish to portray to your users. So this month we will start by looking at four fonts using the Shoelace theme. The first two are called ‘Varela Round‘ and ‘Cabin‘ and come with the theme. Where ‘Varela Round’ is used for the headings and ‘Cabin’ the body text:
What I like about Fredoka is that it stands out a little like inflated party balloons whist Renner* is very crisp and clear. Varela Round is close to the look of Cabin and as they are both sans-serif fonts, thus not out of place in close proximity. They complement each other whist still allowing headings to stand out and be different.
There are lots of free fonts you can use (and test drive) on ‘FontSquirrel‘, have a browse and think if one of them would be better in your theme for your learners.
