The Exeter Learning Environment gets a new look, dividing students.
A new ELE has been launched for the upcoming academic year.
The most significant change has been to the design of the default theme to give ‘a new look and feel’ to the online forum. The layout now features a scrolling image pane to share event information that is responsive to all device types.
Despite the visual alterations, menu options remain the same and all course-related content can be found on the side menu bar.
reactions have been mixed to negative, with many finding the design confusing
Since its release, reactions have been mixed to negative, with many finding the design confusing. One student has claimed, “It’s a maze, I can’t find anything easily like before”. There has been evident backlash on social media with a method to revert to the old ELE theme circulating.
Conversely, some students have not noted a substantial change with one stating, “I haven’t been able to tell the difference apart from a change in colour”.
To change your ELE theme to the old (‘boost’) or another design, edit your “preferred theme” under “edit profile” in your preferences.
