Free Mindmapping Tools:

Visual Understanding Environment (VUE) from Tufts
What is VUE?
At its core, the Visual Understanding Environment (VUE) is a concept and content mapping application, developed to support teaching, learning and research and for anyone who needs to organize, contextualize, and access digital information. Using a simple set of tools and a basic visual grammar consisting of nodes and links, faculty and students can map relationships between concepts, ideas and digital content.

  • Print them out (they can go as big as A0)
  • Change and customise thinking guides, you can add or change text, shapes, images etc.
  • As a teacher, you can set up the sequence that you want the thinking guide to be revealed in, so that you can stage the thinking activity
  • You can fill in a thinking guide and complete your project on the website
  • You can present your project
  • You can send your thinking guide to a whole group of people
  • You can submit a thinking guide for comments, so it can’t be edited but just reviewed
  • Work in groups on the same thinking guide
