Add Concept Map
Please noteThe Concept Map activity is still in pilot operation in winter semester 2021/22 and is therefore currently only available in a few selected course rooms. If you would like to participate in the pilot, please contact RWTHmoodle support.
With the Concept Map activity, you can visualize terms and their relationships in form of a network. By graphically representing information, students can arrange and reflect their thoughts.
Concept maps are represented by rectangles with terms, arrows, and arrow labels. The arrows represent relationships between terms. Arrow labels describe the type of relationship.
Concept maps are used to structure the students' knowledge and to intensively deal with individual terms and relationships.
