[LON-CAPA-users] css reference sheet

The only feedback I received was that they liked the layout of Moodle's questions better. =[

In Moodle the question data is on the left in a grey background.  The question data being: question name (number in Moodle's case), if it has been submitted, and how many questions it is worth.  To the right of that is the question with a light blue background.  The background in both instances spans a rectangular area, not just behind the words.

So I was thinking of having the question data with a grey background and adding some more information to it like date & time of when to submit the question by.  The question in a light coloured background and if I have special instructions (to remind students how to enter solutions) then it would be in a different colour or just have a simple border around it.

Don't get me wrong, I believe that my colleagues like the functionality of Lon Capa but they are not dazzled by it.  I think the appearance is the dazzling limiting factor.  So if I can make some simple changes and polish up the look, I think they'll really like it.

No, we don't have that.

It would help to get some details of what exactly your colleagues take offense at. CSS may not be the best solution.
