What is customisable in an institution portal?


There are a number of different elements within a portal that are customisable, and you can choose which elements to display based on your needs. You can also customise the order of elements in your portal.

We will be covering how to customise each element throughout our Institution Portal articles.

Below is an overview of what customisations are possible for your portal.

To see a live demo institution portal, visit: https://www.openlearning.com/bloom-floristry-school

Customise the titles of navigation bar items and which portal element they anchor to (i.e. when you click it on the navigation bar, it will move the page down to that section).

Set your branding colours, with a CTA colour and an overall Brand Colour. These two colours will be used throughout the portal.

Note: The brand colour will be used for the navigation bar.  As the navigation bar will have text, try to keep the brand colour dark enough to allow white text to be legible.
