Mind Mapping Tools

Create visual mind maps to organize or explain information

Mind maps are visual diagrams used to organize information. They use different visual cues (such as lines, spacing and order) to illustrate hierarchy and relationships. 

Below are some popular mind mapping tools. Students can use any one of them to create a mind map. Then, embed into a discussion post (same as how they are embedded below) or submit the link to their mind map in the assignment dropbox.


This is my top choice from this collection of online mind mapping tools. There is a robust set of formatting options and most importantly, you can generate a link that allows anyone who clicks on it to edit the mind map: https://mm.tt/1764792009?t=965dC0Gb9w. This allows the entire class to collaboratively create a single mind map.
