There are times where you may want to visually brainstorm for a project. Or maybe an instructor has asked you to show your outline or your process. How can you do that, especially how can you include this sort of work in your ePortfolio?
Of course, there's the traditional way: write it all down, scan it, and upload the scanned PDF into your ePortfolio.
But there's also an easier, paper-free way.
Online mind mapping tools can help with this process. The resources below are free online mind mapping tools. Each site is a little different so be sure to find the one that meets your needs.
Once you've selected the tool, follow the site's instructions to create your mind map. When it's complete, export the file to your computer. The file type will depend on the site. If you can, download it as a PDF or an image file so you can use the Image, Video, Audio module.
This map was made with mindomo.com. I downloaded this as a png (image) file and uploaded it into the Rich Text module.
I've uploaded it here using the Image, Video, Audio module.
