Abstract

The Spanish University System is carrying out a convergence process towards the model proposed in the European Space for Higher Education. This involves, among other things, the redesign of all degrees and associated curricula. To achieve a coherent design of a degree we need to carefully analyze the relationships between subjects and the competences to be acquired by taking them. These relationships can be formalized using a complex directed graph, but using concept maps facilitates the understanding of these relationships. Due to the high number of concepts and relationships present in a degree, it is not possible to manually construct the concept maps. In this paper we describe a method and tool to automatically generate different concept maps from the raw data of a degree (subjects, competences, and different relationships between them), previously stored in a database. The generated maps will provide helpful information for Students when choosing learning itineraries, and for the School to assure the coherence of the curriculum.
