Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.



Coggle is a collaborative mind-mapping tool. It can be used to make thinking visible as students brainstorm, storyboard, map out a project, or really anything that requires the organization of an interconnected array of ideas.

What We Like: 
  • Encourages visual thinking
  • Collaborative
  • Free version has valuable features
  • Inability for account-less collaboration via link. All collaborators must be invited by email and they need to establish accounts to be able to edit.
  • Not as friendly on mobile as it is on a laptop or desktop.
  • Adding content can be tricky. Give yourself time to play around with it so that you can support students' learning of the tool.
