Textbook chapters, articles, lecture notes, videos, podcasts & more – organizing all the information presented in a course and making it meaningful to you can be a daunting task. One way you can organize information is through a visual representation called a graphic organizer.
Graphic organizers can be used in many ways, such as preparing an outline for an essay, assisting with group brainstorming and decision making, exploring relationships – the possibilities are endless!
One free graphic organizer available online is called Mindmeister. Signing up for a Mindmeister account allows you to create three free “mind maps” or graphic organizers. You can share your mind map with others and even collaborate with them online! For more information, or to create your account, go to http://www.mindmeister.com/.
