Why Customize the Course Player?

Your Course Player is where your students will spend time interacting with your course content. Sometimes you might have specific branding or color schemes you would like applied to a particular course to create a unique learning environment for your students. For example, if have different groups of students taking different courses, you can customize the look and feel so that all of your students feel at home in your course.
