Maintained by Picture of Łukasz Sanokowski Łukasz Sanokowski
Mindmap Course Format allows Moodle users using courses through interactive, personalized mindmap. Additionally, it provides features unavailable in standard Moodle, which are: graphical presentation of conditional dependencies and distinction of modules where student have problems (and which are near deadline).

It is fully compatible with standard Moodle course formats (like weekly format or topics format) and already existing courses can be switched to MindMap format.

Important update: since 2.0 version, maps are displayed using m3 Mobile Mind Mapper, so this course format should work well on every device and any OS.

Take a look at screenshots which show the same course in standard topics format compared to MindMap format.

    May I know if there is any video that showing how to use it? I tried to install and could not see any hints to use it.
    BTW, could you make it supporting 3.2 as well?

    Hello Jade

    It does support Moodle 3.2, I've updated plugin requirements. It is installed in regular way, just put it in to /course/format directory and click "Notifications" in admin panel. Next - go to a course setting and change the course format parameter to "MindMap"

    Thanks Lukazs

    However, I found that by changing the format, I do not see the way to create a mindmap on the course format. Other than this course_format, do I need to add block_mindmap and mod_mindmap? However, I found that they are not working for Moodle 3.2.

    Sorry I really have no clues. Kindly shed me light.

    Jade, there are no built-in editing tools in mind map. If you want to change course content, just turn editing mode on, and you will see regular course page.

    Hi Lukasz,

    great to see you are still improving the format smile

    I tried installing it on a site with moodle 3.3.1 using your 2.0 version. Got an error:

    Herunterladen format_mindmap ... OK
    Überprüfen format_mindmap ... Fehler
    [Fehler] Entpackte Datei nicht gefunden [{"file":"mindmap\/m3\/stats\/"}]
    Installation wegen einer fehlerhaften Überprüfung abgebrochen

    Tried both ways: installing via drag & drop and via plugin-database. Both with the same resultats.

    With best regards
    Arne

    Fatal error: Cannot declare class format_topics_testcase, because the name is already in use in course/format/topics/tests/format_topics_test.php

    I you copy test code from other plugins into your contribution, you will need to do some changes!

    @Arne, I've recreated environment which you have described and I found no such an error. However, the folder which was causing the problem is unnecessary, I removed it. I've also removed a tests folder which was mentioned by @Renaat - please download the latest version.
