Personalising your MOLE site:

Within your MOLE course there are a number of style options available that you can employ to help tailor and design your course.


Teaching style

The style settings control the course appearance, course entry point, course themes and menu style. You can also add in your own banner.

To change the entry point:

  1. From the control panel select “Customisation”
  2. Select "teaching style"
  3. Locate the Entry point and change it to your required area.
  4. Click submit.

To change the menu style or default content view:

  1. From the control panel select “Customisation”
  2. Select "teaching style"
  3. Locate "Select Menu Style"
  4. Choose style as text or buttons
  5. If you are choosing buttons you can then click the + button on the library to open up a menu of button styles.
  6. Once you have chosen a style locate “Default content view”
  7. CHoose between icon or text only and Icon and text. Please note we recommend leaving this as default “icon and text”

Add a course banner

You will need to already have a banner image ready before you attach it to your course. Blackboard recommends using a banner of approximately 600 by 150 pixels. This is due to users resizing browser windows and the differing sizes of monitors in use.

  1. From the control panel select “Customisation”
  2. Locate “Select Banner”
  3. Click “Browse my Computer” and click your image
  4. Click “Submit”
