Moodle plugins: MindMap Course

Moodle plugins: MindMap Course | TIC & Educación | Scoop.it

WIth MindMap Course, Moodle becomes a first LMS which allows students for using courses through interactive, personalized mindmap. Additionally, it provides features unavailable in standard Moodle so far, which are: 1) graphical presentation of conditional dependencies and 2) distinction of modules where student have problems (and which are near deadline). Map files can be downloaded, they are compatible with Freemind software.


Map is interactive. Users can enter course elements (like sections, modules, lesson and book pages) directly from map. Elements which were not visited by user are distincted with bold font. There are displayed arrows, which describe conditional activity dependencies. Modules, where a particular student has problems, and available time is running out, are appropriately highligthted as well.


Map files can be downloaded and opened in Freemind software, what gives teachers additional features. For example, to create a task for students teacher downloads a map and change it, for example move some elements, add invalid elements, create (or not) a list with elements possible for using. Students task will be getting map to the correct content.

This app requires Java and Flash to work.

IMPORTANT: Map files are stored in /blocks/mindmap/temp/ folder (within the block folder). This folder have to be writeable by the web server process. Temp files are periodically removed via cron script. 

VERY IMPORTANT: TO AVOID DATA LEAK, MAKE SURE THAT YOUR WEB SERVER IS INCLUDING .HTACCESS FILE FROM /BLOCKS/MINDMAP/TEMP/ FOLDER. This disables indexing of the folder. You can check this by entering: yourmoodle.com/blocks/midnmap/temp/ in web browser and you should NOT be able to view any files.

Looks interesting!? "a new perspective for using courses - as a mindmap instead of regular course page".
