Colour schemes and branding RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    I was just wondering how easy it is (if at all) to change the colour scheme of LCDS to make it a little more appealing to users.

    Is there a way of altering the colours in the template or is the blue default or only option?

    Furthermore is there possibilty to insert branding such as a logo / picture on the header of the course or even remove the Microsoft branding at all?

    Many thanks in advance

  • Changing the color scheme :
    Yes, the color scheme can be changed because the graphic components of all templates are stored in the LCDS folders

    Have a look in the various folders - maybe start here:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Learning\LCDSc\Application\platform\authoring\images

    Making your own logo
    - Go to this folder:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Learning\LCDSc\Application\viewer\eng\shared\eng\viewer\appart

    Open MSL_Logo2.jpg   in a graphics editor and change it to your own logo without changing the dimensions (of 144 x 23)

    Your future courses will copy this logo into their design but your previously created courses will still have the default logo - which can be changed out if you search and replace it.....

  • This isn't an official feature of the LCDS.  However, we have seen people modify the display in this way.  I'm wondering if anyone on this forum has more information about how they did that?
