Attaching mind maps to your assignments

You can add mind maps to your Canvas assignments. This way, students can view and edit the maps without having to create their Mindomo accounts or log into Mindomo independently.


This method of attaching a mind map to your Canvas assignment is different from simply embedding the map.

While embedding:

  • You need to make your map public (therefore accessible to everyone that has the embed link).
  • Your map can only be viewed, not edited.

While attaching a map through LTI:

  • Your map remains private, and the students/teachers who have access to your Canvas assignment will be able to view or edit it without you explicitly sharing them the map.
  • If your students or fellow teachers don't have Mindomo accounts, and they are accessing your attached Mindomo map, new accounts will be created for them automatically.

Add a mind map to help students understand better the information and/or the assignment requirements (1).

Clicking on the Mindomo icon will send you to your Mindomo map chooser. After you select the map (2), add it to the assignment (3).

The mind map you added will appear as a link in the assignment's description (4).

Your students will automatically receive access to view the map. When you are done editing the assignment, click on “Update Assignment”.
