Use Mind42 for Easy Mind Mapping

Posted by grizzlymedia on November 21, 2008 – Collaborative mind mapping in your browser via kwout

I may have some kind of fixation with mind mapping Web 2.0 tools. I have blogged previously about and Mindmeister, which are great brainstorming applications, and you may be fortunate enough to be able to purchase Inspiration, or to have a system which buys it for your school as ours does. But variety, as they say, is the spice of life. Mind42 is another great tool you can use to keep up with all of your brilliant ideas, either alone or with your colleagues. Your students can use it to collaborate on assignments and group projects. Because Mind42 is browser-based, you no longer need to download and install programs, so its use is hassle-free. Mind42 supports keyboard shortcuts, drag and drop, zooming, and other features with true WYSIWYG capability. There’s a Vimeo screencast to teach you the ropes, but if Vimeo is blocked at your school (as it is at mine), you may have to watch it at home to find out all the state secrets!
