Tech Tuesday: Coggle, A Mind Mapping App

Mind maps are a great tool for not only organizing your arguments and ideas for a paper or presentation, but also for organizing information you need to know as a way to study for an exam. Consider mind maps as a way to neatly and visually organize all the information you need or want on topics. Coggle is a free website where this can be done. Here are the benefits of using this platform:

  • it’s always free
  • do real-time collaboration on a project with a partner or group. Partners can comment and chat. Track changes are available (like Google Docs)
  • upload PDFs or images to include in your mind map
  • it’s user friendly. You don’t have to know complicated features to use it or to create stunning visual mind maps
  • download the mind maps for studying later,  or include in a paper, or print out for presentations
  • easily share your mind map with others

Check out these sample Coggle mind maps!
