Collaborative revision using a mind map

After seeing this post on lifehacker and also Steve’s post I thought I would give a go.

My form have exams soon so I introduced them to mindmeister a couple of days ago and a few have them have got together to create a revision mind map.  It seems to work very well as a collaborative tool and the map can be found here.

  1. We developed a new collaborative web-based mind mapping tool called comapping. We have ad great sucess with it with students in general.

    Might be worth giving it a try at

    Best regards

  2. Take a look at CMAP too. It represents concept mapping rather than mindmapping, but it allows users to collaborate in realtime on elaborate maps that can be interlinked (ie between maps). Theoretically an entire curriculum/scheme of work/revision plan could be built up using a concept map, which has the advantage that the words that link concepts enable the learner to construct sentences that help recall.
    The OU’s Compendium knowledge-mapping tool is an exciting beastie too. I’ve spent an all-too-brief time using it but it has huge potential. I vow to use it more next year.
