This plugin extracts all the text content from the various learning objects in a course and uses that content to determine a similarity measure between each activity and every other activity. The similarity value comes from a Web service that takes 2 sentences and compares them, returning a similarity measure, which is then used as a link distance between the activity nodes in a network graph. The different distances combined with the graphing physics simulation produce a unique configuration of nodes. This plugin acts as a stand alone program, but is designed to be used with the Behaviour Analytics block, where the nodes in the graph are manually configured. This program is designed to replace the manual configuration process with an automated one.

    I have tested the plugin on 4.0 and found no issues, so it has been released again as compatible.
