How I Use It
This web-based tool for concept maps is easy to use and a good solution for simple brainstorming and doing things like mind mapping. You can try it out without logging in, which will help students acclimate to the tool without using up the limited number of free "popplets" you can create (5). Options exist for collaboration, and images can be uploaded or videos can be linked from Vimeo or YouTube. Each popple is customizable in terms of color outline, size & text size/alignment, but that's about it. Besides printing options, Popplets can be emailed, exported as image files, embedded, or linked, which is nice. The comment feature is also helpful for giving feedback and collaborating.
