Mapping Tools

Do you ever have students brainstorm or collaborate in your face to face classes?  In an online course, the same end results can be achieved by asking students to use a “mind mapping” tool.  Online mind mapping involves adding concepts in bubbles or containers that can be connected as needed to synthesize learning and create conceptual frameworks. Many online mapping tools are also collaborative, allowing users to not online map alone, but to involve others, creating the map together as they would in a classroom environment.  This post contains 5 online mapping tools.  As you design and develop online instruction, consider their use.
