Styles and layout - main entry

Styles and layout are an important part of the user experience, and contribute to the usability of multimedia products (eg websites) and user engagement. Look and feel contributes to user (in this case, student) engagement. FLO has various tools that facilitate structure and layout.

When you set up/layout your topic site, it is always a good idea to test how it looks using the Preview as a student function. 

You may also find the Leganto for topic coordinators guide useful (especially 'Other useful functions') in terms of the student experience.


Style tools

The HTML editor is available in any activity and resource (Description field). The toolbar for the HTML editor has many functions (create heading styles, create text styles, add an image, embed a video etc).

Resource types

In FLO, you can Add an activity or resource to the topic site. Resources include the following, and contribute to the organisation/structure of the site. They can be a form of 'sensemaking' for a user (ie student) – providing 'containers' for content that make navigation easier.

See Tool options - resources to determine what type is suitable for your needs.

  • Book (create, add chapters, edit/delete chapters)
  • File (upload a PDF, Word file, image etc)
  • Folder (create, add a zip file)
  • Label (create)
  • Page (create)
