bubbl.us

A tool for creating mind maps. Requires setting up an account. It allows creating, saving and sharing up to three maps for free. No installation required.

Évaluation: A useful, online mind mapping tool. It is a great visual support helping to bring out relevant vocabulary and highlight relationships between concepts in an appealing manner. Very user-friendly. It enables saving work for future use, as well as editing by different users. A drawback, in comparison to CMap, is that it does not enable synchronous editing. Very basic IT skills required for its use.
Why not try using it during a class discussion or prior to a free-speaking or reading activity?
 
Coûts: Free with registration + Paid premium plans
