I'd like to create a mindmap of textboxes connected by branches.

I'd like some of these textboxes to be 'collapsible', i.e. there is some sort of interactive element/ button that I can press to expand a textbox, to show more text.

I'd then like to publish this mindmap so it is accessible to other users (online or offline, it doesn't matter), but with the interactive elements remaining interactive to those other users.

Can anyone recommend a free software that can meet these requirements? It could be online or offline, but should be able to run on Windows machines.

MindMup is a free, opensource, online mindmapping canvas. It is:

  • Zero friction: Access your data anywhere, from any device. Use our free cloud storage for public mindmaps. Store private mind maps on Google Drive, with detailed access and sharing control. All this without the need to register, have accounts or remember passwords.
  • Productive: User interface automatically adjusts to touch displays or desktops/laptops systems. On desktops, all map operations have keyboard shortcuts. On mobile devices, toolbars convert to touch menus and buttons become larger. You can hide all the menus and toolbars to get the most out of your screen and we use HTML5 capabilities to enable you to get the most out of your browser. Smart bookmarks allow you to quickly continue where you left off.
  • Community-driven and Open: MindMup is free, opensource, without any marketing, ads or spam. We built the software for ourselves and we respect our users. Freemind mindmap import/export allows users to easily take maps in and out. Development is user-driven, and we work on the features our users vote for.

Here is link to download freemind to create Mind maps.
