FreeMind

After writing yesteday's post, I decided to have a look around for new versions of mind map sofwares. I downloaded the Windows version of FreeMind at the university and later the Mac version at home. I must say that I am very nicely surprised. The latest version is indeed much better and might be a workable option for me.

Just came over from the comment you left at my site.

I've been trying to figure out how to make use of the mind mapping programs myself. At one point I was going to use FreeMind to store quotations.

However, looking through wikipedia, I came across a program I think is much better that uses concept maps.

For one, the cmap just feels more playful. But the most important thing is that you can do more complex connections. I guess the best part is that you HAVE to make the relationship between nodes explicit. Though, I suppose you could mimic the structure in a mind map... Either way, check it out. I think you'll enjoy it.

Interestingly enough, it looks like a mind mapping website showed up in Del.icio.us.

Thanks for your comments. I have been also using cmap for some time. It is designed to make concept maps rather than mind maps, but it is a very useful tool also. I have posted a few screenshots of maps I had made last year to suggest a way for my students to using mind mapping for revisions.
