For some people mind mapping and concept mapping may represent the same technique, however, there are some differences. This article compares these two terms and lists their similarities and differences in a simple mind map (or a concept map?).

A new mind mapping or 'note mapping' tool that is simple and requires no great skill. Create mind maps or flashcards from your notes.

The service is free, you just need to register with your email or Facebook account. I like the option that you can present your mind map straight from the website, no need to download the map.

Looks good for using with students.
