This is a great resource ,well i will also like to add guidelines for creating mind maps:

  1. Start in the center with an image of the topic, using at least 3 colors.
  2. Use images, symbols, codes, and dimensions throughout your mind map.
  3. Select key words and print using upper or lower case letters.
  4. Each word/image is best alone and sitting on its own line.
  5. The lines should be connected, starting from the central image. The central lines are thicker, organic and thinner as they radiate out from the centre.
  6. Make the lines the same length as the word/image they support.
  7. Use multiple colors throughout the mind map, for visual stimulation and also to encode or group.
  8. Develop your own personal style of mind mapping.
  9. Use emphasis and show associations in your mind map.
  10. Keep the mind map clear by using radial hierarchy, numerical order or outlines to embrace your branches.

This list is itself more concise than a prose version of the same information and the mind map of these guidelines is itself intended to be more memorable and quicker to scan than either the prose or the list.

What a great approach to mind mapping with Connect Pro. You are quite creative and obviously see 'outside of the box".

Hi Dave -

Thanks for the positive feedback. As I have lost my 'edexchange posting virginity' with this effort, I am now confident to put up some other resources from my eLearning R & D. Keep an eye out in this area. Please do contract me directly on abasiel@gmail.com anytime.
