Text 2 Mind Map - Simple mind mapping online

Text 2 Mind Map - Simple mind mapping online | Let's Learn IT: New Media & Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

Welcome to the brand new text2mindmap.

It might look the same, but much has changed underneath. A few changes you might notice:

- Zooming (finally!)
- Save/download actions moved to below the textarea
- Auto-saving your work in your browser
- Support for different font styles
- You can now use key commands:
  - CTRL – Enter (Draw mind map)
  - CTRL – S (Save)
  - CTRL – D (Download)
  - CTRL – plus (Zoom in)
  - CTRL – minus (Zoom out)
- Finally, we have left Flash and now rely on pure HTML


Via Baiba Svenca
Let's Learn IT's insight:

Basic, but ok. A little bit unfortunate you have to enter your text in a separate box and not directly in the mind map ...

Robin Good's curator insight, March 12, 2013 2:26 PM



Formerly known as WallWisher, Padlet is a cool web app which allows anyone to easily create, share and publish multimedia contents with extreme ease.


Padlet provides an empty canvas on which you can upload and freely position any image, link, video or file you want. Actually you have two options for layout: a) Stream (as in a blog) and b) Freeform.


Your final composition can be published as a public page, shared on social media or embedded fully inside your website or blog.


Padlet works across all types of devices and screens.



Free to use.

André Manssen's curator insight, March 13, 2013 2:52 PM

Vroeger heette deze leuke webtool "Wallwisher", een gratis digitaal prikbord en heel leuk om in de klas te gebruiken.

GIANFRANCO MARINI's curator insight, March 14, 2013 5:11 AM

Mi limito a tradurre in italiano quanto scritto da Robin Good: Precedentemente conosciuto come WallWhisher, Padlet è una webapp che consente a chiounque di realizzare, condividere e pubblicare facilmente  contenuti multimediali. 

Padlet fornisce uno spazio nel quale è possibile caricare e posizionare dove si vuole qualsiasi tipo di immagine, link, video, o file. Attualmente le opzioni per il layout sono di due tipi: 1. Stream (come in un blog); 2. caricamento di uno sfondo personalizzato.

Il risultato finale può essere pubblicato come pagina pubblica, condiviso nei social media o incorporato in un sito web o blog o forum.

 

Posso aggiugnere che mi sembra un servizio che può essere facilmente utilizzato nella didattica in quanto offre la possibilità di creare spazi organizzati in cui presentare temi e problemi disciplinari o multidisciplinari e aggregare informazioni dal web su temi specifici. Un utile strumento per l'insegnamento e l'apprendimento.

 

Per utilizzarlo è sufficiente registrarsi, l'uso è libero e gratuito.

Hi Stan, I hear your complaint there and I must say that you are not the only one seeing that issue.

I have been reporting interoperability issues with other services since at least a year but to no avail. Unfortunately new features and support for mobile devices seem to have a priority on fixing the foundations first.

One of the good things about using Scoop.it is that it is not on my own site. I can link to my own post and get a back link.

Pricing seems resonable, given the enterprise class feature set. Seems it's worth a test run.

Yes Martin. I am not in love with the scrolling up to discover new things but maybe I'll get used to it. What do you say on that one?
Martin Gysler's comment, February 6, 2013 3:41 PM
Hi Robin, Yes, I understand and I think you're right not to test all the new tools, it is a lot of work and it is not always worth the trouble. What I can say after a few tests, is that the tool is slow and I do not really understand how it could be interesting for me. Finally, I think we can do the same thing with Twitterfall in a more simple and faster. But perhaps I have not yet understood what this tool can do.
